Kuching to host 1,500 delegates for Muslim business forum

Date:

KUCHING: More than 1,500 international and Malaysian delegates will gather here for the two-day Global Muslim Business Forum 2022 from Oct 19 to 20.

Themed ‘The Rise of the Global Islamic Economy: Refocusing, Resetting and Recovering in the Post-Pandemic Era’, the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) has been picked as the venue.

Forum organising chairman Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan said the international business conference was a platform to promote dialogue and discourse on the global Islamic economy and encouraged multi-stakeholder collaboration between government, businesses and the civil society.

Leaders and heads of states from Muslim countries, particularly from the Asian region, will be invited to speak.

The event will be held on a hybrid format, meaning it will combine an in-person event with online components, where participants will be able to choose to participate either in person or virtually, while speakers will be able to present their works in person at the venue or their presentation streamed during the session.

“There will also be an awards ceremony for business excellence and lifetime achievement during a gala dinner and business networking and matching session,” Awang Tengah said.

He said the forum would also highlight Sarawak’s strengths in renewable energy, new economy such as hydrogen production and petrochemical sector.

The forum was founded by the KSI Strategic Institute for Asia Pacific, a leading think tank based in Kuala Lumpur and the Global One Foundation based in London.
