The Annual Islamic Finance Conference (AIFC) is a Ministry of Finance annual event that brings together policymakers, economists, academics, and the private sector to discuss various critical Islamic finance, economic, and development issues, particularly for Indonesia. In addition, AIFC aims to discuss and exchange new ideas and information among experts and relevant stakeholders. Previously, AIFC was held in Jakarta in 2016, Yogyakarta in 2017, Makassar in 2018, Surabaya in 2019, and virtually in 2021.
This year, AIFC would raise an interesting topic that has already become a global interest: “Islamic Finance Role in MSMEs Empowerment: Boosting Capability and Fostering Inclusiveness for Sustainable Future.” This conference is also held in conjunction with a call for paper event aimed to gather high-quality papers, which are expected to become references for academia and policymakers, particularly in economy and Islamic finance.
With this background, the 6th Annual Islamic Finance Conference Call for Paper is held by Fiscal Policy Agency – Ministry of Finance and Department of Islamic Economics IPB University to provide a platform for researchers, regulators, observers, or related stakeholders in Islamic economics and finance to present the results of their scientific research related on “Islamic Finance Role in MSMEs Empowerment: Boosting Capability and Fostering Inclusiveness for Sustainable Future.” In addition, selected papers will have the opportunity to be published in reputable scientific journals.
