The World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) Foundation organised the Eight World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) on 4-6 December 2012, in Iskandar Development Region of the state of Johor Bahru, Malaysia – the fastest growing economic region in the country and one of the most significant business districts in Southeast Asia. The Forum was held on the theme “Changing Trends, New Opportunities”. The Eight WIEF discussed the changing dynamics in global business today after the Arab uprisings and Eurozone crisis which left many doors open to new business opportunities elsewhere across the globe.
The WIEF Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation based in Kuala Lumpur and runs programmes of the various initiatives of the Foundation that aim to strengthen cooperation and knowledge exchange between Muslim and non-Muslim communities across the globe.
The three-day Forum provided a high level platform for leading global government leaders, industry practitioners, academic scholars, regional experts, professionals, corporate managers, policy makers, innovators, business leaders and investors to discuss opportunities for business partnerships in the Muslim world.
Throughout the Forum, the underlying theme of “Changing Trends, New Opportunities” was examined across the framework of policy, business, technology, and finance with presentations from industry leaders, discussions among senior representatives from key market players and respected analysts.
