MUSCAT — As the banking industry gears up to roll out Islamic Banking services, one of the challenges faced by all stakeholders is the availability of qualified personnel to provide sharia-compliant financial products in the Sultanate.
To address this gap, the Central Bank of Oman (CBO) has been imparting training to its staff at reputed organisations both local and abroad. Further, in line with this goal, the industry regulator has partnered with Bank Negara Malaysia and Islamic Development Bank to conduct a workshop on Islamic Finance in Muscat from January 27 - 30 at City Seasons Hotel. The workshop will be held under the auspices of Hamood Sangour al Zadjali, Executive President of Central Bank of Oman.
The workshop will cover various facets of Islamic Finance like Principles of Islamic Finance, Shari’a Governance structure and Risk & Liquidity management in Islamic Financial Institutions.
