Foreign dignitaries who will be attending the conference include Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Sabah, Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, and other top state and private sector officials.
The Young Muslim Leaders (YML) Forum, which convened for the first time in Islamabad last year, will meet to discuss measures to provide the youth with more opportunities, especially in tertiary education.
An exhibition will be held on the sidelines of the forum organized by the WIEF Businesswomen's Forum to showcase women entrepreneurship.
The WIEF, initiated by Malaysia in 2005, is organized by the WIEF Foundation in association with Malaysia's Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute, the Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Industry under the OIC, the Islamic Center for Development of Trade, and the Islamic Development Bank.
The World Islamic Economic Forum seeks to bring together government, business leaders, and thinkers to discuss ideas, brainstorm issues, and develop solutions to advance the world in general and the Muslim business community in particular.
