Global Islamic finance
Dr Abdul Rahman Bin Abdullah Al Humaidi, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Arab Monetary Fund, said Arab countries account for about 60 percent of the global Islamic financial industry, which amounted to $3 trillion by the end of 2021.
He said building the capabilities of workers in this industry and the capabilities of the regulatory and supervisory authorities is key for the continued momentum, growth, and development of the industry.
He pointed out that setting accounting standards for Islamic finance institutions helps support the growth of the industry, and achieves calibration and harmonization between Islamic financial practices among Arab countries, or between practices in Arab countries and international practices.
It also leads to the transparency of accounting disclosure, the reliability and credibility of financial statements, and facilitates the work of Islamic finance institutions.
