Following its global sponsorship of the Al Baraka Symposium in Medina and Al Baraka Summit in London, Al Baraka Group (ABG) announced its sponsoring for Al Baraka Summit taking place in Istanbul for the first time since the Summit launch in 1981.

The Summit will be held under the patronage and presence of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the President of The Republic of Türkiye.

The two-day event will take place at the Istanbul Lütfi Kırdar International Convention and Exhibition Centre, from Friday, 24 May 2024 at the Anadolu Auditorium to Saturday, 25 May 2024 at the Marmara Hall.

With the support of Al Baraka Türk, the Summit will focus on “Global Prospects for Islamic Economics: Fundamentals and Needs”, delving into five major topics including history, trends, ethical principles, challenges and opportunities in Islamic economics.

The Summit serves as a knowledge sharing platform for leaders in the Islamic banking and finance industry to exchange ideas, understand the latest technologies and provide opportunities to build global partnerships.

The panel discussions and workshops to be held throughout the event will also enable attendees to improve their skills and expand their knowledge in Islamic economics and finance.

On the occasion, Mr. Houssem Ben Haj Amor, Group CEO of Al Baraka Group, said: “Through this summit, we aim to highlight the importance of Islamic finance and enhance its global presence, in addition to setting the foundation for its prosperity and success. We also hope to utilise our expertise in the field to contribute to further growth in the Islamic finance industry.”

Since 1981, the Al Baraka Islamic Economics Symposium has played a significant role in advancing Islamic economic practices from both a jurisprudential and technical perspective.

The Symposium features presentations and discussions on emerging economic and Sharia issues led by renowned Islamic scholars and jurists, alongside extensive participation from international experts in finance, business, economics, and Islamic finance.
