Landmark Islamic finance publication (Ministerial)

Media release

12 February 2010


Trade Minister Simon Crean today launched the Australian Government’s first-ever comprehensive publication on Islamic finance.


The booklet Islamic Finance provides a detailed explanation of the opportunities that booming Shariah-compliant investment and banking offers Australia’s financial services sector.


Australia is well positioned to service almost 1 billion Muslims who live in the Asia-Pacific region and to tap into petrodollar liquidity.


“Islamic financing is a crucial plank in the Government’s strategy to make Australia a financial hub in the Asia Pacific region,” Mr Crean said.
