Gathering leading thinkers, policy makers and stakeholders from around the world to lead a discussion on the future of the USD 4 trillion Islamic economy.
The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry will be launching the first Global Islamic Economy Summit in partnership with Thomson Reuters this November. This is following a conference held in January this year titled «Dubai: Capital of Islamic Economy» in which His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced a number of initiatives to build a comprehensive platform of Islamic economy products and services. The summit will address the six pillars of an Islamic economy which are halal travel, halal food, halal lifestyle, Islamic finance, small to medium enterprise development and Islamic economy infrastructure. The summit also aims to bring together leading thinkers and policy makers from around the world to discuss the current status and future of the global Islamic economy.
