The inaugural Global Islamic Economy Summit in 2013 introduced to the world the idea of a cohesive global Islamic Economy. This year we build on that palpable momentum to go beyond delivering on ‘what’ this market is to showing ‘how’ we can all benefit from it.
This year’s Summit will be the platform for over 2,000 policymakers and business leaders to connect from across the Islamic world and beyond. The Summit will discuss critical issues affecting the Islamic Economy, including those related to: business and investment opportunities in Islamic finance and insurance; the full Halal food value chain from manufacturing to logistics; Halal products manufacturing; Tourism; and small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
Held under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, we welcome you to the Global Islamic Economy Summit 2015 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE on October 5th and 6th 2015. Organised by Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Thomson Reuters, the 2015 Summit will not just match the success of the inaugural 2013 Summit but surpass it.
What is the Global Islamic Economy?
The Islamic Economy affects the lives of more than just the 1.7 billion Muslims worldwide. It is open to all discerning consumers, citizens, and businesses from Australia to Alaska who understand the need to improve the way we consume, produce and work with one another. The Islamic Economy is a way of living - through products, experiences, services, processes and relationships - that is halal, ethical, wholesome and family-friendly. The Global Islamic Economy portal is your central resource to learn about, connect, and engage with the rapidly-growing global Islamic economy.
