Malaysia to host a virtual international conference on Islamic finance

Maybank Islamic Bhd will be launching its inaugural global thought leadership conference that will enable a global platform and collaboration on the integration of sustainability and Islamic finance within the halal economy.
Held in partnership with IslamicMarkets Ltd, the Global Connect Forum, with the theme “Driving Sustainable Impact Through Islamic Finance”, will be held virtually from March 21-23, 2022 on
“The forum will feature special addresses, fireside chats and panel discussions; bringing together policymakers, business leaders, scholars and key stakeholders from the Islamic finance industry and halal economy to share key insights and industry best practices,” it said in a statement.
Maybank Islamic chief executive officer Datuk Mohamed Rafique Merican said some 500 participants are expected to attend the forum.
“We chose the theme ‘Sustainable Impact Through Islamic Finance’ to aptly reflect what is happening around us now, as sustainability has never been more relevant than it is now since the coronavirus pandemic hit us.
“It is our objective that this forum will enable a global platform for collaboration, on the integration of sustainability and Islamic finance,” said Mohamed Rafique.
IslamicMarkets chief executive officer Shakeeb Saqlain said the Global Connect Forum comes at a critical time when there is a need for meaningful dialogue to further solidify the convergence of sustainability, Islamic finance and the halal economy.
