Dr Talat Hussain, Acting Dean Institute of Islamic Banking, welcomed Dr Muhammad Aslam, Rector UMT along with the esteemed national and international guests. He gave a brief note on the vision of IIB. The theme of the Global Forum was to discuss the Islamic economics model of Riyasat e Madina and its implementation.

Dr Sheila Yusuf from International Islamic University, Malaysia was of the view that scholars need to embrace change and work together in order to attain the ideal state of Riyasat e Madina.
