Many legal and financial experts and Shariah scholars, among others, will attend a two-day international conference on sukuk, which will begin in Doha today.
Focusing on “sukuk instruments between standardised structuring and secured implementation” the event will be held under the auspices of Qatar Central Bank Governor, HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Saud al-Thani.
The conference is being organised by the International Islamic Centre for Reconciliation and Arbitration (IICRA) with the official sponsorship of the QCB. Qatar Islamic Bank will be the strategic sponsor.
Through the conference, the IICRA is aiming to raise the profile of Islamic banking in general and sukuk industry in particular. It will also throw the spotlight on the latest thinking on issues facing all kinds of sukuk.
The event will feature sessions on the legal and jurisprudential framework of sukuk, the legal system for trading and issuing sukuk, practical realities, recent draft laws, supervision and control, and the settlement of disputes in the sukuk industry.
IICRA general secretary, Dr Abdessattar al-Khouildi said, “We have decided to organise the conference in Doha because we value the key economic role of Qatar in the region, bearing in mind that Islamic banking in this country plays a leading and vital role in issuing sukuk regionally.”
