About The Forum
Jordan has been working hard to build its Islamic finance ecosystem with the hope of attracting long-term investments to aid the country’s Sustainable Development Agenda 2030, for which the government has the strong support of the IDB, the World Bank and the UN.
With a total of four Shariah banks, Jordan’s Islamic banking and finance industry is exhibiting promising growth. The government floated its maiden Sukuk paper in 2016, which encouraged a number of entities to follow suit. Following a successful dialogue in 2017, IFN returns to Jordan in 2019 with a one-day dialogue which will gather local regulators, industry practitioners and international key players to participate in thought-provoking and engaging sessions on the nation’s Shariah banking and finance industry.
