ICD offers Islamic finance study tours to Russian, CIS officials

The consensus at the pioneering inaugural Roundtable on "Islamic Finance in Russia and the CIS: Market and Regulation" which was held last week in Istanbul and organized by Bank Conference and largely sponsored by the Jeddah-based Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector was the following:

As such, Islamic finance in the region is at best a work in progress but the task ahead remains huge.
