Lately, there are encouraging developments in relation to Islamic banking and finance industry globally. Islamic banking has been accepted as a conduit for the supply of competitive products and financial services. This initiative is supported by strategic measures in addition to government support of various parties in developing this field.
The global financial crisis that hit recently has opened huge opportunities for the Islamic financial sector as one of the main alternatives to the crisis. With the global Islamic financial assets are still able to register positive growth; with assets expected to increase from time to time, this sector is expected to become more developed in international financial markets with unique characteristics compared to conventional financial system. The increase in financial sector development is also evident from the interest and commitment portrayed by the international financial centers that are mainly dominated by non-Muslim communities such as London, Paris, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan.
