IE Pioneers Discussion on Opportunities in Islamic Finance and Tourism
Over a dozen renowned speakers from Islamic and Spanish institutions engaged in a full-day conference centered on new scenarios in the Muslim world.
In collaboration with Casa Arabé and the Dubai Islamic Economy Development Center, IE Business School hosted a one-day conference in Madrid with some high-level executives from the Islamic financial and economic landscape. The conference sparked discussion around the business opportunities brought by the flourishing growth of Islamic Fintech, online crowd-funding and venture capital. In parallel, the experts provided executives and professors with insights into the rise of the halal economy and tourism industry, expected to reach $233 billion in 2020.
The event hosted two panels, welcomed by Carlos Mad, Executive Vice President of IE Foundation and Pedro Martinez-Avial, Director General of Casa Arabe, who stressed the importance of nurturing the relationship with Islamic Businesses in Spain and overseas, along with IE’s commitment to encourage ongoing exchanges.
