In 2017, under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai and General Supervisor of the “Dubai: Capital of Islamic Economy” initiative, Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre launched its Strategy that focuses on long-term impact. The main objective of the strategy is to drive the growth of the Islamic economy sectors on a local, regional and global scale, and to set a benchmark for the Islamic economic system worldwide.


At the heart of the strategy are three economic pillars – Islamic finance, halal industry, and Islamic lifestyle encompassing Islamic art and culture, modest fashion, and family-friendly tourism – and three enabling pillars – knowledge, standards and digital Islamic economy. The economic and enabling pillars interconnect and work together to realise the vision of the UAE leadership for the Islamic economy through shaping a conducive environment for sustainable investments and real development.
