“The world is ready for an alternative to interest-based finance, and today we have more resources and capabilities than ever before to make the world a better place. Of course, we are extremely proud of how far we’ve achieved in Islamic economy, but going forward, let us converge our efforts and grasp the opportunity to push this industry beyond any limitations, to achieve its full potential,” Kateeb said.
