Hamdan bin Mohammed Smart University will be the first UAE university to host the China-UAE Conference on banking and Islamic Finance
Hamdan bin Mohammed Smart University (HBMSU) will host this year's China-UAE conference on Islamic banking and finance.
Now its third year, HBMSU will host the two-day event from 7th -8th November, 2018 in China.
This year's event is being organised under the theme, ‘The potential for participative economy and financial system: growth, development, integration, and cooperation’.
The conference is strategically important as the first such event to consolidate the efforts of the UAE and China to support global Islamic economy, which is expected to grow eight percent annually to $3 trillion by 2021.
The conference will explore new horizons to further enhance financial and economic integration and to strengthen historical economic ties between the Silk Road markets, embodying the objectives of 'one belt, one way', with a focus on driving investment in Islamic sectors that offer promising opportunities for the UAE-China economic rapprochement.
The event will feature a high-level international participation aimed at driving stability and prosperity within the framework of productive collaborations and promotion of synergies between the public and private sectors.
