The WIEF Roundtable, an initiative of WIEF Foundation, recently joined forces with UEF and co-organised the event in Chennai. It focused on the development of Islamic financing, investment opportunities in India and shariah-compliant investments.
On 10 November 2018, Chennai played host to the WIEF-UEF Roundtable that was attended by over 400 participants from at least six countries. An initiative of WIEF Foundation, the WIEF Roundtable has travelled to cities such as Moscow, Gangwon, Johannesburg, London and Phnom Penh. Its discussions with industry experts include those on topical economic issues within a regional focus.
This time, the fourteenth Roundtable had four sessions, with expert speakers from finance and banking sector across the world, discussed various aspects of shariah-compliant investment opportunities in India, prospects of Islamic finance in non-Muslim countries as well as investment opportunities in Tamil Nadu. The Roundtable succeeded in providing a platform for entrepreneurs as well as investors to network, and for them to explore business opportunities.
India has emerged as the fastest growing major economy in the world and it’s expected to be one of the top three global economic powers over the next decade or so. It has the world’s third largest startup base with over 4,750 technology startups. India’s investment potential is undeniable and its state of Tamil Nadu is a big contributor to its economy, with its capital city, Chennai, being a significantly large commercial and industrial centre.
