Although Islamic finance and the halal industry are both part of the fast-growing Islamic economy, they are not integrated as they should be. On the one hand, aligning the two will ensure an end-to-end Shari’ah compliance, starting from the point of capital raising and all the way to the final product or service. On the other hand, strengthening the ecosystem and building a stand-alone economy will not only meet the needs of Muslims for Shari’ah-compliant products and services but also offer compelling ethical and sustainable alternatives to the rest of the world.
Join us in what will be a thought-provoking session to learn how Islamic finance can be better aligned with the halal industry; what strategies should be implemented; how to measure the impact of the initiatives taken, and support inclusiveness.
- How did the convergence between halal industry and Islamic finance progress in the last decade? What's impeding the alignment between the two?
- What can IFIs do to move closer to the halal industry? What tools or initiatives should be implemented?
- How should IFIs measure the outcome and impact of aligning halal industry and Islamic finance?
- How will the current pandemic affect the synergy between halal and Islamic finance?
