Press Release


Islamic Finance news INDONESIA Forum 2014
Exploring Indonesia’s Potential as a Global Player in Islamic Banking & the Islamic Capital Market


Demonstrating consistent growth over the past year, industry observers around the globe have acknowledged the robust potential Indonesia holds for the Islamic finance industry. With a Muslim population of over 244 million, it has been suggested that Islamic banking and finance in Indonesia is society-driven. The country’s strong economic fundamentals and robust government measures have made it the top ASEAN performer so far this year.

Indonesia is a priority market and a staple on the Islamic Finance news Forum calendar. The IFN Indonesia Forum has had a successful track record in bringing together the republic’s most influential Islamic banking and finance players.

With strong government-led initiatives, the one-day forum this year will bring you a complete and comprehensive discussion of Islamic finance in Indonesia. The forum will cover all areas of the industry, amongst others: the prospect of an Indonesian Islamic megabank, a Sukuk roundtable, Indonesia as an Islamic economy, regulatory regimes and the country’s key investment opportunities.

Through a series of country presentations, regulatory round-table discussions, a CEO session comprising of leading practitioners from well-established banks, sector focused side sessions and unparalleled networking opportunities, the IFN Indonesia Forum in 2014 will once again be the vital, must-attend industry event for issuers, investors, regulators and all financial intermediaries involved in the Islamic financial markets with an interest in the Indonesian markets.

The 2014 IFN Indonesia Forum will take you around the republic and explore the growth opportunities for Islamic finance, the potential Islamic finance has in the raring Indonesian economy, as well as tax and regulatory developments needed to further boost the country's Islamic capital markets.
