speaker-1
H.E. Ahmed Osman
Governor
Central Bank of Djibouti

"The International Islamic Banking Summit Africa: Djibouti 2016 is an innovative landmark gathering which regularly convenes global industry leaders to boost economic development and facilitate greater trade and investment flows between Africa and the OIC markets through Islamic finance. Islamic finance brings several key value propositions to Africa; most notably in the areas of enabling infrastructure finance, boosting international trade & investment flows, and deepening financial inclusion; and accordingly this year’s Summit will focus on “Harnessing the Driving Forces for the Successful Development of Islamic Finance in Africa".

Chris Principe
CEO
Chain2Trade, Inc. &
Founder FinFuture magazine & Financial IT magazine

“A very positive story, if one that is not yet well understood, is unfolding in Africa. New technology, new ideas and new business models are producing new opportunities. The distinctions between telecom services providers, payments services providers and financial institutions are breaking down. In virtually all African countries, there are sufficient numbers of mobile phones - which are not necessarily smartphones - for previously unbanked people to have access to high quality financial services at low cost. Innovative companies are using Blockchain technology and crypto-currencies to resolve fundamental problems such as lack of access to electricity and lack of access to global financial markets. Finnovation Africa: Uganda 2017 highlights how FinTech is transforming Africa for the better, facilitating payments, boosting financial inclusion and developing new enterprises. However, the conference does much more than that, as it engages key stakeholders to reveal how the entire world is changing. In many ways, Africa is a FinTech leader, rather than a follower.”.


speaker-1
Konstantin Peric
Deputy Director, Financial Services for the Poor
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

“Industry leaders from across the African and global FinTech industry will gather at Finnovation Africa: Uganda 2017. There they will harness the growing momentum around digital financial services into more inclusive and productive economies across Sub-Saharan Africa. As the formal economy grows, we see individuals, communities, and nations prosper, global and national leaders make progress on other key growth and development goals. When unbanked and underbanked families have access to digital financial services, everyone benefits.”.


speaker-1
Aaron Fu
Managing Partner, Africa
NEST.vc

"Africa is not just a destination for global fintech innovation but is increasingly the birthplace of fintech which has scaled to other emerging markets across the world, we're really excited to continue accelerating African fintech scaling to the world.".


speaker-1
Abdul Rahman M. Al-Baker
Executive Director - Financial Institutions Supervision
Central Bank of Bahrain

“The asset management industry is poised to enter an exciting stage in its evolution in the GCC region. The shape of the wealth and asset management sectors in the GCC is unique and the last two decades have confirmed the region’s position as an important financial hub for wealth and asset management, as well as a key trading centre connecting East and West. Indeed, the financial services industry has made significant contributions to the impressive economic growth rates across the GCC.

However, global economic headwinds, created by uncertainties in China and the decline in oil prices, are challenging the international asset management industry to respond to this changing investment landscape. Nevertheless, positive prospects continue to attract capital to the region in search of hig-quality investment opportunities. Bahrain is already the Gulf’s most established fund distribution centre and is an internationally recognized financial hub, with the financial services sector in Bahrain being not only the largest sector of the non-oil economy but also the largest employer.

Against this dynamic backdrop, the Middle East Asset Management Forum (MEAMF 2016), is being launched under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain and with the support of the Bahrain Asset Managers Association. Combining a highly innovative and interactive format with world-class speakers and more than 200 international delegates, MEAMF 2016 will tackle the most pressing questions that will drive the ongoing progress of the asset management industry across the dynamic markets in this region. The Middle East Asset Management Forum (MEAMF 2016) will take place on the 30th & 31st of May 2016 at the Gulf Hotel in the Kingdom of Bahrain, under the theme The Road Ahead in the MENA Investment Industry.”


H.E. Khaled M. Al-Aboodi
H.E. Khaled M. Al-Aboodi
Chief Executive Officer
Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector

"There are many significant signs that Islamic Finance is gaining serious momentum on the African continent and is becoming one of the key drivers for equitable and sustainable growth for a strong and dynamic private sector. Clearly the growth of Islamic Finance will not only provide new financial instruments but will also provide greater access to liquidity pools across the Middle East which will result in faster economic, social and human development on the continent.".


speaker-2
Ijlal Alvi
Chief Executive Officer
The International Islamic Financial Market (IIFM)

"The role of standard-setting bodies, such as the IIFM, is key in the ongoing successful international development of the Islamic financial services industry. IIFM plays an enabling role in market unification by developing best practices at the global level and achieving harmonization through its efforts to create a robust, transparent and efficient Islamic finance industry. The Islamic Banking & Investment: Asia/Middle East Congress 2016 presents a high-profile platform for IIFM to communicate new developments and we look forward providing briefing on technical aspects of Islamic hedging and liquidity management standards to the industry leaders from across Asia and the Middle East."

 

 


speaker-4
Admassu Yilma Tadesse
President and Chief Executive
PTA Bank

“Djibouti has a bright future as a blue ocean economy and major hub for services, not only transportation and logistics, but others such as banking and finance, notably Islamic finance, for which there is much and growing demand in the region. With robust economic growth and increased demand for finance in Africa, and given the growth of Islamic finance internationally, Djibouti's positioning presents an attractive opportunity for the development of a significant centre for banking and Islamic finance, especially considering the gaps in financial intermediation in the immediate region. Realizing this potential will of course require a strong institutional framework and enabling macro-economy, as well as suitable incentives and smart public-private partnerships".
