The Transformative Roundtable Dialogue on Halal Economy is jointly organised by the Africa Islamic Economic Foundation (AFRIEF), Ghana, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, Lapai (IBBUL), Nigeria, and Islamic Research and Training Institute, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia under the Distinguished Patronage of His Excellency, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (GCFR), former President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, on the theme: Mapping the Future of Halal (Ethical) Economy in Nigeria.
The main purpose of the Roundtable Dialogue is to create better awareness and understanding among policy makers, leaders and stakeholders of the public and private sectors, the academic and professional communities about the Halal Economy and how the full spectrum of Islamic finance offerings – from banking to capital market products – will advance Nigeria’s economic development plans and economic diversification program. In addition, this high level meeting is designed to, within the framework of national priorities, meet three core objectives: (a) consensus-building, by providing a platform for intergovernmental and private sector driven debates and inquiry; (b) policy-oriented analysis, by identifying key issues underlying the Halal economy and the dynamics of Halal industries in world markets; and (c) technical cooperation, by helping the various Governments of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to articulate a development strategy that can optimize the economic potential of the Halal (Ethical) Economy to stimulate private investment, attract new technologies, promote entrepreneurship and set the basis for a an export-led strategy for the emerging Halal industries in Nigeria.
The event therefore, provides a platform for key stakeholders, policymakers, business leaders, academics, researchers, students, practitioners and other leaders of society from within the Federal Republic of Nigeria to map the sectors and sub-sectors of the Halal economy in order to understand what exists, where the value chain for each is concentrated, what possibilities exist to support and expand the varying sectors, as well as the emerging and informal, in order to develop and maximize Nigeria’s potential for tapping into the USD$3 trillion Global Halal Economy.
