Abdelilah BELATIK

Secretary General of CIBAFI

It is a great pleasure for me to do the opening of this twenty two edition of the Global Islamic Economics Magazine.

It is indeed a privilege and honour being appointed as the Secretary General of the General Council For Islamic Banks And Financial Institutions (CIBAFI) and continue the work of my predecessors, Dr. Omar Hafiz and Dr. Ezzedine Khoja that have served the General Council for the periods 2012 - 2013 and 2001 - 2012 respectively. 

The current position of CIBAFI in the Islamic Financial Services Industry (IFSI) has been achieved by the efforts of my predecessors combined with the strong leadership, vision and guidance of CIBAFI Board of Directors, which is led by H.E. Shaikh Saleh Kamal, and importantly with the support of our member institutions and partners.

CIBAFI has now been established for more than 13 years. During this period, Islamic finance has grown in its size, covering all sectors of the financial system, namely the Islamic Banking, the Islamic Capital market and Takaful sectors. Its global reach is undeniable with the Islamic financial institutions operating in more than 75 countries. The world in which our member institutions operate is also becoming more complex. The ongoing global regulatory reforms, the stringent requirements on financial reporting and disclosure and global calls for strengthening transparency, governance and Shariah frameworks are just a few of the key challenges faced by our Industry. It is in light of these developments that the General Secretariat, under the guidance of its Board of Directors, will perform an assessment of its products and services in order to remain relevant to our members’ needs and expectations, in representing the IFSI globally and defending and protecting its role in the financial system. The need for CIBAFI to consolidate co-operation among its members and with other international institutions with similar interest and objectives is a necessity now more than ever. 

Continued support from our members and partners has been and remains the goodwill of our institution that motivates the General Secretariat in fulfilling the tasks at hand.
