WHAT IS ISEF?
Starting from its initial background as the alternative instrument for a more evenly distributed wellbeing, the industry of sharia finance and economy is now transforming into one of the factors which enforces the development of Indonesian economy.
As a country with the highest Muslim population in the world, Indonesia is widely known as a ‘sleeping giant’ with a high potency and opportunity of being the leading actor of world’s economy, especially in the sector of sharia economy/finance. With that high potency, Bank Indonesia, or the central bank, tries to give some real contributions to the development of sharia economy and finance in Indonesia.
The contributions would be, among others, the implementation of an activity so-called Indonesia Sharia Economic Festival (ISEF) which has been held since 2014. The vision of ISEF is to enforce the sharia economy and finance as the main current of national and international policies, as well as to make Indonesia the world’s reference of the development of sharia economy and finance. As an effort in manifesting the vision, Bank Indonesia has been committed to upgrade the scope of ISEF activities to reach the international level. ISEF has experienced transformation, as in turning its local and national agendas to be more international, with an aim of making Indonesia the world’s leading center of sharia economy/finance development.
