The Vice President of AlBaraka Turk Mr. Ayhan Keser will participate in Moscow Halal Expo 2015 and will speak at the 6th Islamic Finance and Investments Forum which is to take place at CrocusExpo on May 21. Turkey is one of the closest and most perspective trade partners of Russia in the Middle East. With the imposition of sanctions and embargo against European products, importing of Turkish goods to Russia is again up to date. The agenda includes trade financing issues for transactions between the two countries.
The prospects of financial and investment cooperation with Islamic banks become more visible, especially with the development of legal instruments necessary for the operation of Islamic banks in our country. In particular, a draft law allowing banks to perform trading operations was introduced to the State Duma in the spring of this year.
The management of Al Bakara Turk expressed their interest in working in Russia pursuant to Islamic finance principles. In his speech, Mr. Keser is expected to touch upon the prospects of cooperation with Russian companies and banks.
Headquartered in Bahrain, the AlBraka Banking Group has been a partner of Moscow Halal Expo for the past four years. The Group offers its assistance in organization of training programs for teachers and students of Russian universities.
