Dubai’s selection as host of the 10th session of the World Islamic Economic Forum 2014 – one of the world’s largest gatherings to share knowledge, experience and expertise in Islamic economy – will take the emirate a step closer to its vision of becoming the world capital of the Islamic economy.

The announcement came during the opening day of the World Islamic Economic Forum 2013 in London, being attended by a high-level Dubai delegation headed by Mohammed Abdullah Al Gergawi, Chairman of the Executive Office of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice-President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and Chairman of the Higher Committee for the Development of the Islamic Economy Sector, including top government and Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry officials.

Al Gergawi accredited this achievement to the vision of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who initiated the “Dubai: Capital of the Islamic Economy” initiative and laid clear guidelines to focus efforts on the various aspects of developing the Islamic economy, and whose ambitious strategy has started to bear fruit.

Al Gergawi stated that the selection clearly indicates Dubai’s ambitions in achieving global leadership in the area of the Islamic economy. It also reflects Dubai’s potential to make a huge success of global events and presents the emirate as a viable option for hosting major international forums and conferences.
