East Africa Islamic Economy Summit 2018 to Focus On Fintech Technologies


Elaborating on the theme of the 3rd edition of the East Africa Islamic Economy Summit, Agnes Gitau, GBS Africa, said, "East Africa's fairly developed infrastructure and communication sector, a young educated tech savvy population and their ability to capitalise on technology development provides a great opportunity for the region to lead in the Islamic Finance digital economy."

Five years back, with the support of key institutions in East Africa, GBS Africa started a conversation around Islamic Finance, Islamic Economy and East Africa's economic development.

This conversation has grown to become an annual gathering for the region where significant players in East Africa's economy meet to set the way forward for the development of the sector, aligning deliberations to East Africa's economic development agenda.
