KUCHING, June 13: Sarawak will host two-day Global Muslim Business Forum 2022 at Borneo Convention Centere Kuching (BCCK) from Oct 19 to 20, 2022.

Themed “The Rise of the Global Islamic Economy: Refocusing, Resetting and Recovering in the Post-Pandemic Era”, the international business conference aims to promote dialogue and discourse on the global Islamic economy while encouraging multi-stakeholders’ collaboration between government, businesses and civil society.

Heads of States, leaders and key business figures from various Muslim countries, particularly from the Asian region will be invited to deliver their keynote addresses.

The event will be held in a hybrid format, meaning that it will combine an in-person event with online components, where participants can choose to participate either in person or virtually, while speakers will be able to present their works in person at the venue or presentation which will be streamed live.

Sarawak Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan who is chairman of the main organising committee, informed that among the key highlight of the forum includes the launching of Global Muslim Business Leaders Council to promote greater business cooperation among businesses particularly after the global pandemic.

“There will also be award presentation for business excellence and lifetime achievement during the Gala Dinner and business networking and matching session.

“The forum will also highlight Sarawak’s strengths in renewable energy, new economy such as hydrogen production and petrochemical sector,” said Awang Tengah in a statement today.

More than 1,500 participants from both international and domestic are expected to participate at the event.

The event will provide opportunities for Sarawak’s small and medium enterprises to form strategic alliances with international business community.

During the main organising committee’s meeting which was held earlier this afternoon at BCCK, a working committee and 13 sub-committees led by various government authorities were formed. – DayakDaily
