Details

Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation, but it lags other jurisdictions in developing its Islamic finance industry. In 2017, one estimate showed Islamic finance accounted for only about 5% of the country’s total financial services, although this situation is gradually changing.

Indeed, over the past 12 months, the Indonesian government has been developing its Islamic finance capability. For instance, in July 2017, Indonesian president Joko Widodo inaugurated the National Committee for Shariah Finance, or KNKS to give its abbreviated Indonesian name. The establishment of KNKS is part of the government-led push to promote Indonesia as a global financial centre for the Islamic finance industry.

This comes as the Financial Services Authority (OJK) launched last year a road map designed to develop Islamic finance in Indonesia over a three-year period. This road map aims to create a sustainable Islamic financial services industry that can compete with traditional financial services in Indonesia.

• How can Islamic finance be developed to help address the infrastructure funding gap in Indonesia and elsewhere in the region?
• How can we incorporate Islamic principles into Indonesia’s project financing?
• How can we attract more corporate issuers/borrowers to access the sukuk market as a funding avenue?

• What Islamic structures will find favour with investors?
• What is the government doing to promote the Islamic fund and asset management industry in Indonesia?
• How is Indonesia adopting a sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) framework for Islamic investment funds?
