The Annual Islamic Finance Conference (AIFC) is a Ministry of Finance annual event that brings together policy makers, economists, academics, and private sector to discuss various key Islamic finance, economic and development issues particularly for Indonesia. The purpose of AIFC is to discuss and exchange new ideas and information among experts and relevant stakeholders. Previously, AIFC was held in Jakarta in 2016, Yogyakarta in 2017, Makassar in 2018, Surabaya in 2019 and in Virtual Conference in 2021.
This year, AIFC would raise an interesting topic that has already became a global interest: "Islamic Finance Role in MSMEs Empowerment: Boosting Capability and Fostering Inclusiveness for Sustainable Future". The topic is also in line with the G-20 priority issues to empower MSMEs in addressing current economic challenges and at the same time strengthening the economy.
This conference is also held in conjunction with a call for paper event that is aimed to gather high quality papers, which are expected to become references for academia and policy makers, particularly in the field of Islamic economy, Islamic finance and MSMEs.
