Africa has proven to be a vital region for the development of Islamic finance, as 2016 witnessed a number of exciting sovereign Sukuk issuances with debuts from Ivory Coast and Togo, while Senegal launched its second Islamic debt instrument.
Long a hotbed of interest with its large Muslim population and exceptional natural resources, other African nations such as Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria have also expressed their intention for sovereign issuance in the near term. Hot on the heels of the second ICD-led Africa Islamic Finance Forum held in Ivory Coast in October 2016, IFN will once again collaborate with the ICD and IDB to bring the event back for the third time in 2017 in another eminent market for Islamic finance.
With full government support and hosting some of the most influential decision-makers in the industry, this event is not to be missed. Watch this space to find out the 2017 location!
