  AIBIM HOLDS SEMINAR ON PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION IN ISLAMIC FINANCE FACILITIES

Tuesday 14/11/2017



KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 14 (Bernama) -- The Islamic Financial Services 2013 (IFSA) which came into force in 2013, allows the Islamic banks to diversify their product offerings and opens new opportunities to Islamic banks to venture into new business areas. This is surely an avenue to achieve 40% of the market share by 2020.

AIBIM Law Seminar 2017 (ALAS 2.0) which has received an overwhelming response from legal practitioners nationwide, is a 2-day programme organized by Association of Islamic Banking Institutions Malaysia (AIBIM) to equip the legal fraternity with current knowledge on practical aspects of dispute resolution in Islamic finance facilities.  

ALAS 2.0 is officiated by Yang Amat Arif Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Zulkefli bin Ahmad Makinudin, President of the Court of Appeal Malaysia and supported by Bank Negara Malaysia with the presence of the Deputy Governor, Encik Abdul Rasheed Ghaffour.

The President of AIBIM, YBhg. Dato’ Haji Mohd Redza Shah Abdul Wahid, in his welcoming remarks at AIBIM Law Seminar 2017 today urged legal practitioners to always be ahead of the curve in order for them to discharge their roles responsibly and effectively. This is especially important in the new environment created under IFSA.

The liberalisation of legal sector under the amendments of the Legal Profession Act 1976 and the Legal Profession Rules 2014 will also significantly benefit the Islamic banking industry as it gives more options for banks to choose and retain best legal experts. 

Dato’ Mohd Redza Shah Abdul Wahid added, Malaysia's Islamic finance marketplace is well known for its comprehensive regulatory, supervisory, Shariah and legal framework. Local lawyers should seize this opportunity and learn from their foreign peers to further drive the development of the Islamic finance industry and to push for the adoption of Malaysian law as “the law of reference” for any dealings and settlements with international counterparties.
 
AIBIM is determine to explore the possibility of organising more of similar programmes in an effort to strengthen the understanding of Islamic Finance in Malaysia.
