Already dubbed as the potential savior to the world’s financial woes, the Asian economy is emerging at a phenomenal pace, while maintaining a robust fiscal position amid the financial rubble in the west. NAZNEEN HALIM explores the exotic and untapped opportunities in the region and uncovers the latest emerging markets according to industry opinions.

By 2015, it is anticipated that emerging markets will constitute 41% of the global GDP; almost triple the amount in 1987. As opposed to the developed markets — predominantly those of North America and Europe, Asia (including the Middle East) has almost all the elements needed to create an economic powerhouse. A growing population, improved financial regulations and infrastructure, raw materials, robust manufacturing capabilities, unsaturated financial markets, increasing talent and human capital alongside demand for development and infrastructure projects are among the factors currently fuelling the Asian boom. Both market observers and investors are excited about the prospects of the emerging Asian economies; particularly for Islamic finance.
