Sub-Saharan Africa Islamic Finance Convention 2017
As the global business environment adapts to the new normal of Brexit, the Trump presidency and the implications of a post-oil economy, Sub‐Saharan Africa continues to be an increasingly important component of global growth.
In particular, the expansion of Islamic ﬁnance in the region is providing new growth opportunities and propelling faster trade and economic growth in Sub‐Saharan Africa. Against this dynamic backdrop Ethico Live! in collaboration with ABL Dunamis are delighted to announce the second annual edition of the Sub‐Saharan Africa Islamic Finance Convention to be held in Uganda at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel on the 6th of April 2017.
The purpose of the Sub-Saharan Africa Islamic Finance Convention is to build on the gathering’s position as a strong platform for the growth of the industry that will not only help to establish Uganda as an exciting investment destination but also enable the development of the broader Sub-Saharan market. The inaugural Islamic Finance Convention in Uganda in 2016 was met with a very positive response as more than 200 industry players from over 70 international organizations and more than 25 international speakers deliberated outcomes that focused on Africa’s New Momentum. The event was attended by several high-level delegations from the Ministry of Finance in Uganda, Bank of Uganda, the Private Sector Foundation, and the Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Uganda, as well as major private sector financial institutions from across Africa and internationally.
