Roundtables

Dubai Islamic Economic Roundtable 2014 SERIES 4

A group of leading industry experts recently gathered at the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC) under the aegis of IFN and the Dubai financial authorities to discuss the challenges and opportunities of building a global Shariah compliant trade finance network and the possibility inherent in creating a suite of products to service this goal.

Trade finance currently supports 90% of the world trade but emerging economies have seen the highest volumes of trade globally. Where does Islamic trade finance sit in this equation: what are the challenges that we’re encountering when proposing Islamic trade finance, and how can we bridge that gap?

Islamic Finance news was delighted to bring together the experience and expertise of leading industry stalwarts including Moinuddin Malim, Prasanna Seshachellam, Paul McViety and Fadi Yazbeck. Representing multiple different backgrounds, sectors and fields of expertise from the regulatory, technological and legal arenas, the panel achieved a rewarding and challenging discussion.
