Nigeria To Host 3rd Africa Islamic Finance Forum This Week



Nigeria will hold this year’s edition of Africa Islamic Finance Forum (AIFF).

The event will be jointly organised by the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector (ICD), a member of the Islamic Development Bank Group,   a statement from the Federal Ministry of Finance said.

The two-day forum is scheduled for March 27-28, 2018, at the Eko Conference Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos. It will serve as a networking platform for the business and finance communities, facilitate the forming  of partnerships among businesses  and provide a  catalyst for business development in Nigeria in particular,  and the African continent in general.

The Forum will create awareness among participants about existing   various Islamic Finance Instruments which are ready to support the government’s need for raising capital for large infrastructure projects and enhance individual and SMEs access to financial services.

Some of the top decision-makers in  the business and finance communities from Nigeria, Somalia, Cote D’Voire, Sudan, Kenya  and other African countries will engage in extensive discussions on investment opportunities in key African markets during the two-day Forum .

Many experts in Islamic Finance would present papers, including one entitled “Islamic Finance as a tool for Development and Growth and the interface between Public and Private Sectors” by Suleiman Abubakar, Executive Director, Finance and Strategy, Sterling Bank.
