Welcome to the Global Islamic Economy Summit 2013
The Islamic economy is emerging as a new paradigm that will be driving growth over the coming decade. The Global Islamic Economy Summit 2013 is the first event to bring together world-class experts in critical industry sectors that span geographic regions and cultural boundaries to directly address the greatest challenges and opportunities in this new economy.
The Global Islamic Economy Summit 2013 is organized by Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Thomson Reuters, held on 25th-26th November, 2013 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum,

The Global Islamic Economy Summit 2013 will be the first forum for Islamic Finance sectors and the Halal industries – including food, travel and lifestyle – to engage in meaningful discussions, tackle the most important challenges, and chart paths for the future of the Islamic Economy.
GIES attendees will also have the opportunity to hear the latest updates and trends within the global Islamic economy and access high-level speakers.
To further encourage networking and business partnerships, attendees will also have access to the Interactive Zone on the GIES website where they can review the attendee list and email other delegates prior to the event.
