- PRESS RELEASE
The Islamic Financial Services Board (IFSB) is organising its 7th Summit on 4 - 5 May 2010 in Manama, Bahrain. The Central Bank of Bahrain is hosting the Summit, which is themed: "Global Financial Architecture: Challenges for Islamic Finance".
The 7th Summit will be convened following the events of recent years that have dramatically transformed perceptions of the soundness and stability of the global financial system with respect to both its architectural framework and industry best practices.
The crisis has highlighted the challenge for regulators and key industry players to take the necessary steps to ensure that this rapidly evolving industry continues to remain sound and stable. Indeed, the Summit will provide a suitable platform to discuss; 1) how international organisations can best provide the structure and facilities that equip the industry for further sustainable growth; 2) lessons that need to be learned from the crisis and their implications for the IFSI; 3) areas of monitoring and surveillance that need more attention; and 4) whether the current and evolving composition of the industry provides an appropriate basis for its sound and stable development.
The one-and-a-half day Summit aims to bring together an experienced international group of chairpersons and speakers, with a projected audience of over 200 delegates from all sectors of the financial services industry across the globe. The Summit will address the following topics:
- The Changing Landscape of Financial Regulation: Implications for Islamic Finance
- Macro-Prudential Surveillance Issues for Islamic Finance
- New Architecture for Liquidity Management for Islamic Financial Instruments
- Balanced growth of Islamic finance- the Sectoral Composition of the Islamic Financial Services Industry as a Contributor to Growth with Stability
- New Islamic Financial Architecture: Challenges Ahead
Two events will precede the Summit, a Public Hearing on the IFSB Exposure Draft on Solvency Requirements for Takaful Undertakings and IFSB Country Showcases, which the IFSB is organising on 3 May 2010.
