Al Baraka Banking Group Sponsors Islamic Banking and Finance Conference


The Bahrain based leading Islamic banking group Al Baraka Banking Group (ABG), announced that, as part of its leading role in supporting the development of the Islamic financial industry and in continuation of its past participations, it sponsored as a platinum partner, for the second time, the activities of the  Annual Islamic Banking and Finance Conference organized by the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI) and the World Bank, which was  held in Bahrain yesterday. The conference was attended by distinguished internationally renowned Islamic banking personalities from different parts of the world.

Al Baraka Banking Group has for many years been supporting and sponsoring all the events and activities that contribute to the development and promotion of the Islamic financial industry.   Al Baraka Banking Group is keen to sponsor and support these specialized conferences in view of their strong link with the implementation of the Group's strategies in serving the Moslem communities in whose countries ABG units operate.  Furthermore, the conference has now become an important platform that brings together all those concerned with or interested in the Islamic finance industry including scholars, bankers and government officials to discuss major issues related to the Islamic financial industry. The conference, as such, provides a suitable forum for addressing challenges and identifying new opportunities in all markets, and this is exactly what the industry now needs; especially that it has become a major player in the international financial markets. Moreover, the conference provides a valuable opportunity for exchanging ideas relating to Islamic banking business at present and setting up future plans to develop the Islamic banking regionally and internationally. Holding the conference annually in the Kingdom of Bahrain underlines the importance of the Kingdom as an international financial center and an important center or Islamic banking.
