Manama, December 10, 2012
Kuwait Finance House – Bahrain (KFH-Bahrain) has announced that it is supporting the ongoing 19th Annual World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC) in Bahrain as a Gold Strategic Partner.
The conference is being held at the Gulf Hotel from December 9 to 11, where more than 1,200 industry leaders, senior decision-makers and key regulators from over 50 countries have gathered.
The theme for this year’s World Islamic Banking Conference, “New Strategies for Islamic Finance to Come of Age”, is addressing new opportunities in terms of expanding the industry on an international level – boosting cross-border transactions, accessing new markets and creating new products that point the way forward towards renewed growth horizons.
For almost two decades, the WIBC has firmly established itself as the largest gathering of Islamic finance leaders in the world and has strengthened its pivotal role as the platform where the future of the industry is shaped.
As per the conference theme, financial institutions need to ensure that they are well positioned to address the progressive market and regulatory requirements before they step into new geographical regions and expand regionally and internationally. The WIBC aims to highlight emerging trends in the Islamic finance sector and potential new markets.
This year's conference is featuring a host of new and value-added topics that set it apart from all other conferences.
It is also the platform to launch the ninth edition of the WIBC Competitiveness Report, the world's only original research into the performance and key trends of Islamic banking worldwide. – TradeArabia News Service
