Islamic Financial Services Board

Singapore Booth at the 5th IFSB Summit 2008, Jordan

Within the Islamic Financial Services Board (IFSB), MAS participates actively as a Council Member and is committed to IFSB's work through our participation in its Technical Committee and the standard setting work of the various working groups and taskforces. Singapore will host the 6th IFSB Annual Summit in May 2009. The Summit is the largest gathering of senior financial regulators from member countries and private sector participants to discuss key issues on the supervision and future development of Islamic finance.

It will be the first time the annual flagship event is held in East Asia and underscores the increasingly relevant and important role that Islamic finance plays in Asia. MAS has given strong support to past IFSB Annual Summits, including the 5th Summit which was held in Amman, Jordan.
