Islamic Finance Working Party - Webinar on AI & 5G Technology

The Islamic Finance Working Party (“IFWP”) under the Practice Management Committee held its first webinar on 25 November 2020 gathering around 60 legal professionals and active players in the Islamic financial industry representing different sectors such as Consul Generals, government officials, and representatives of banks and corporations.

Mr Allen Ting, Senior Legal Counsel of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd, was joined by Vice-President and IFWP Chairman Amirali Nasir, in this webinar entitled “Artificial Intelligence and 5G Technologies – From a Privacy Perspective” where panelists provided insights into how technologies outpace policy and legal frameworks, in particular in terms of privacy protection, and how 5G networks impact the delivery of Islamic financial services in the digital age.

We were also graced by the presence of Mr Ricky Chu, Chairperson of the Equal Opportunities Commission, at the webinar where Mr Chu was invited to share briefly about the work of the Commission during the pandemic with the audience.

Our heartfelt thanks to our speakers and guests for joining our event.
