Hajah Rokiah said the summit features 30 local and international experts and speakers from Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Tajikistan.

One of the speakers is Deputy Director of Islamic Financing at the Indonesian Ministry of Finance Dr Nana Riana whose team’s novel financing mechanism project on cash waqaf-linked sukuk earned the prestigious Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) Prize for Impactful Achievement in Islamic Economics.
