Islamic Finance news Pakistan Roadshow 2013

Expanding the Realms of Islamic Finance

Islamic finance in Pakistan has come a long way since its introduction in the 1970s. With a Muslim population of almost 200 million and increasing demand for Shariah compliant banking products from the grassroots level, there is no doubt that the republic’s Islamic finance sector could prove to be a sound contender against flourishing Islamic finance markets such as Malaysia, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia.

Bringing you presentations, case studies, key-notes and round-table discussions, the IFN Pakistan Roadshow 2013 will once again be the must-attend event for practitioners and professionals who have an active interest in Islamic finance in Pakistan.
