Under the auspices of the Ministry of Economy and Finance of the Kingdom of Morocco, The World Bank (WB), Islamic Development Bank, and Guidance Financial Group plan to hold the Second Annual Symposium on Islamic Economics and Finance on December 8-9, 2016, in Rabat, Morocco. The goal of the Symposium is to provide an established forum to bring together leading members of the academic, policymaking, private sector and development communities to discuss new developments and exchange their cutting-edge ideas on the rapidly changing field of Islamic economics and finance. The conference will allow participants to enhance their practical and professional understanding of this increasingly important field and clarify the major issues that need to be bridged between conventional and Islamic economics and finance. The Second Symposium will be held in strategic partnership with Groupe Banque Populaire.
The theme of the 2nd Symposium is “Developing Long-Term Financing and Islamic Capital Markets”. It will incorporate a special focus on the development of Participative Finance in the Kingdom of Morocco and will include invited papers by International and Moroccan academics.
