The IFSB Summit 2017 will be held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates will be hosting this year's Summit.
The IFSB Summit 2017, themed “Reinvigorating the Momentum of Islamic Finance: Solidifying Resilience and Sustaining Growth” will take place against the backdrop of a world economy that is undergoing a paradigm shift resulting from the new uncertainties emerging from a changing global geopolitical landscape, evolving monetary policy tightening in the US, sluggish recovery in oil prices and a general uncertainty in economic outlook. These factors, combined with lagged precedents from the earlier years, have contributed towards a general slowdown in the global economy, the impact of which has also been felt across the Islamic financial services industry (IFSI) where some sectors of the industry have been experiencing a slowdown in recent times.
The IFSB Summit 2017 seeks to discuss the issues and challenges facing the IFSI in the present conditions with a view to finding opportunities to reinvigorate the growth momentum across the various sectors while solidifying resilience of the institutions offering Islamic financial services. These efforts need to be considered in conjunction with supportive policy reforms by the regulatory and supervisory authorities, particularly at this time of on-going implementation of post-financial crisis strengthened regulatory requirements.
The Summit welcomes high-level participants from regulatory and supervisory authorities, institutions offering Islamic financial services, international organisations, multilateral development banks, academics, and think tanks among others.
