Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and organized by Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Thomson Reuters; the Global Islamic Economy Summit 2015 (GIES) will be held at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai on October 5th and 6th 2015.
The inaugural Global Islamic Economy Summit in 2013 introduced to the world the idea of a cohesive global Islamic Economy. This year, the summit aims to build on that palpable momentum to go beyond delivering on ‘what’ this market is to showing ‘how’ we can all benefit from it.
This year’s Summit will be the platform for over 2,000 policymakers and business leaders to connect from across the Islamic world and beyond. The Summit will discuss critical issues affecting the Islamic Economy, including those related to: business and investment opportunities in Islamic finance and insurance; the full Halal food value chain from manufacturing to logistics; Halal products manufacturing; Tourism; and small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
Organised by Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Thomson Reuters, the 2015 Summit will not just match the success of the inaugural 2013 Summit but surpass it.
