ARI Research Retreat 2012

Day 3
On the last day of the retreat, two more activities took place.  In the morning, the Accounting Research Institute (ARI) conducted its normal meeting with the researchers where research issues were discussed and viable solutions were proposed.  More importantly, ARI HICoE's top management shared their vision and aspirations and encouraged members to work cohesively to achieve the ministry's expectation for us to go international.  Strategies should therefore be in place to involve as many international collaborators as possible in each of ARI HICoE research projects.  Researchers, especially those from various state campuses have indicated their interest to establish ARI Chapter in their campuses. After the meeting, Professor Dr Milind Sathye from the University of Canberra, Australia addressed the audience on the way forward towards internationalisation.  ARI HICoE niche area of Islamic Financial Criminology is indeed "cutting edge" and researchers must ensure that their research data is of high quality so that publications in high impact factor journals are very likely and viable.  Thank you all.....
