Islamic finance has emerged as an effective tool for financing development worldwide. It has expanded rapidly over the past decade covering bank and non-bank financial institutions as well as takaful, capital markets and money markets. Its growth provided opportunities to strengthen financial inclusion, deepen financial markets and mobilise funding for development by offering new modes of finance and attracting unbanked populations that have not participated in the financial system. The session will explore:

  • role of Islamic finance in the promotion of regional trade and investments
  • impact of internationalisation of Islamic finance through Islamic bonds or sukuk
  • regional initiatives to help enhance financial sector connectivity with other economies to support mutually-reinforcing growth
