Islamic Finance: financing instruments and development perspective in sub-Saharan Africa

Date 6 June 2017

Time: | 11:00 AM Abidjan | 01:00 PM Paris| 2:00 PM Nairobi | 2:00 PM Jeddah

Making Finance Work for Africa (MFW4A) and the Islamic Cooperation for the Development of Private Sector (ICD) are pleased to launch a webinar on Islamic Finance: financing instruments and development perspective in sub-Saharan Africa.

Islamic Finance is a concept that is widely viewed as a viable alternative to coventional finance. The industry is increasingly attracting attention as a potential way to help mitigate institutional barriers and promote financial development. Islamic Finance is today seen as a significant financial innovation that is gradually making headway into mainstream finance. What then are the fundamentals of this concept? What role can this form of banking play in the development of the African financial landscape? What value proposition is Islamic Finance expected to deliver? And more importantly, can the core principles of Islamic Finance be linked to the UN Sustainable Development Goals?

Please join us on (here). Registration is free but limited, so please register early.

This session is the first of a series of webinars on Islamic Finance and Banking that MFW4A is organizing, in line with its mandate and in collaboration with prominent financial institutions working in the industry across the globe.

The keynote speaker will be Salah BABALE, from ICD. The session will be moderated by David ASHIAGBOR, MFW4A.
