IBFIM collaborates with MOFA in creating a diverse talent pool in Islamic finance

5 Apr 2021 | Monday

The Islamic Banking and Finance Institute Malaysia (IBFIM) is collaborating with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) to organise programmes under the Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP). Two of IBFIM's flagship certifications, namely, the Associate Qualification in Islamic Finance (AQIF) and the Fundamental Certificate in Islamic Banking (FCIB) were selected by MOFA for the MTCP.
The MTCP, launched on 7 September 1980, was Malaysia’s commitment to the South-South Cooperation, and is a platform for Malaysia to share its development experiences with other developing countries. Since its inception, more than 34,000 participants from 144 countries have participated in MTCP.
Four programmes will be conducted by IBFIM and first will be held from 5 to 9 April 2021, involving eleven delegates from Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh and Laos.
“It is an honour for IBFIM to be given the opportunity to collaborate with MOFA through the MTCP and to instill deeper understanding of Islamic finance beyond the Malaysian shores,” said IBFIM’s Chief Executive Officer, Yusry Yusoff.
“AQIF and FCIB, are two of our flagship programmes. Both were designed to ensure attainment of technical proficiency and professional skills. To date there are 3,312 AQIF holders and 932 FCIB holders, respectively,” added Yusry.
“We look forward in supporting the effort to build stronger bilateral relations between Malaysia and other countries through this collaboration” he concluded.
