Session: The Role of Islamic Capital Market for Economic Growth

Session Brief: The Islamic capital market plays multiple roles in the economy and society of various jurisdictions. Its steady growth has also contributed to greater integration with the global financial system and a major driver for domestic economic growth. Despite these achievements, the challenges in many jurisdictions are – the lack of product offerings, providing a regulatory and legal environment that are conducive, harmonisation of fatwa and capacity building. How can we work together to transform this challenges into opportunities?
