Name:[EVE00376] IFSB-AMERC of IOSCO Joint High-Level Seminar on Development of Sukūk Markets in the Middle East and Africa: Growth Potential and Policy Considerations

The Islamic Financial Services Board (IFSB) and Africa / Middle-East Regional Committee (AMERC) of IOSCO are jointly organising a High-Level Seminar, themed, “Development of Ṣukūk Markets in the Middle East and Africa: Growth Potential and Policy Considerations” on 26 September 2019 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The joint seminar will be hosted by the Securities and Commodities Authority UAE, in collaboration with Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre (DIEDC), Gulf Bond and Ṣukūk Association (GBSA), S&P Global Ratings and National Bonds UAE.

The one-day joint high-level Seminar aims to examine the recent developments and future potential of ṣukūk markets in the Middle East and Africa region, and to identify areas where further development is needed to bolster the growth and effective utilisation of Islamic finance in realising the developmental objectives of the region. The Seminar will also discuss relevant aspects in strengthening the regulatory environment, including issues related to investor protection and financial stability and strengthening the overall growth and resilience of the region’s capital markets, taking into consideration the specificities and differences of ṣukūk from their conventional counterparts.
