Following the success of the first East Africa Islamic Finance Summit (EAIFS) in February 2016, we are delighted to announce the 2nd edition of the annual event. This year, the summit has been expanded to cover the entire scope of the Islamic Economy.

Globally, Islamic Economic Principles play a significant role to today’s Business Environment, with the size of the Islamic economy size reaching $2.3 trillion and the world population of Muslims reaching 1.6 billion. In Africa, there has been an increasing interest in other Islamic products like Family-friendly Tourism products and Halal Foods.

The summit will explore opportunities that the Islamic Economy will offer the East African states with regards to their major infrastructural needs. Key sectors that the summit will focus on include;

•Islamic Finance & Banking

•Family friendly Tourism

•Halal Economy

The Summit will brings together the most influential figureheads in East Africa and the world of Islamic Economy thereby providing the participants with a platform to share best practice, exchange views and opinions on the issues affecting Islamic Economy development in East Africa. Read More
