Islamic Economy

Home to the world's first commercial Islamic bank and largest Islamic financial market, Dubai remains a leading Islamic Economy globally.

Aiming to capitalize on the majority of the estimated $1.93 trillion market size by 2022, there is no better destination for global Islamic finance needs. Dubai is also seeking to capture a large chunk of the $283 billion Modest Fashion, with the country as a whole already amongst the top 3 largest spenders.

Its highly appealing and developed retail sector attracts many of the leading producers of modest fashion already, with many more having sights on setting up shop in the city.
