days to go
Date: 27th July 2017 Venue: Four Seasons Hotel, Jakarta

The IFN Indonesia Forum, a key event on the IFN Forum calendar, continues to bring together the country’s top regulators and influential market players to discuss the growth and opportunities present for Islamic finance. Being the country with the largest Muslim population in the world and with strong support by local regulatory bodies, Indonesia’s Islamic finance industry is set to grow even stronger in 2017. The country reaffirmed its position as a leading sovereign Sukuk issuer in 2016 when it issued a dual-tranche global Sukuk facility worth US$2.5 billion and received overwhelming response from the investor base. Furthermore, it is set to become one of the founding members of a potentially significant Islamic investment infrastructure bank that will serve the infrastructure financing needs in the region.

This one-day forum will provide global industry players access to Indonesia’s key decision and policymakers as they discuss the current trends and issues facing the country’s Islamic finance landscape. Indonesia remains a priority market for REDmoney events, given that developments in this market are expected to significantly impact the growth of the Asian Islamic finance industry.
