Over the past 17 years the World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC), held annually in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has firmly established itself as the largest and most
influential platform of its kind in the world attracting more than 1,200 industry leaders from over 50 countries each year.

Speaking at the 16th WIBC in Bahrain last December, H.E. Heng Swee Keat, Governor of the Monetary Authority of Singapore
said he was pleased that MEGA has decided to bring WIBC Asia to Singapore. He noted that:

"Islamic finance will provide an increasingly important bridge in the growing connectivity between the Middle East and Asia.
Singapore is pleased to help catalyse deeper relations between these two high-growth regions. WIBC Asia will provide a unique
platform for the industry to share experiences from established centres of Islamic finance".

WIBC Asia 2010

David McLean, managing director of MEGA, the owners of the WIBC brand, announcing the launch of WIBC Asia, continued: "With the increasing interest in Islamic
finance, especially in new international markets, it was a logical move for WIBC to host an Asia focused gathering and we are delighted to be working with the Monetary
Authority of Singapore and launching WIBC Asia in one of the premier financial centres. WIBC Asia 2010 will complement the objectives of the world event, providing a
powerful platform for industry leaders seeking to build their presence in the dynamically evolving Asian markets for Islamic finance. Building on WIBC's 17 years of
tracking the developments and scoping the trends in the global Islamic banking and finance industry, WIBC Asia 2010 will feature insightful debates on the substantial
issues facing the industry as recession gives way to recovery and new international growth markets open up."

WIBC Asia will be held in Singapore on the 14th & 15th of June 2010 and is expected to attract more than 300 industry leaders looking to capitalise on exciting new
growth opportunities for Islamic finance in Asian markets.
