Malaysia ‘Exports’ Knowledge On Islamic Finance Management To Japan

ALOR SETAR, Sept 28 (Bernama) — Malaysia is ‘exporting’ knowledge on Islamic financial management to Japan through the translation of two books from English to Japanese, published by Universiti Utara Malaysia Press (UUM Press).

The two books written by several lecturers from the School of Economics and Banking (SEFB) were launched at Tokyo International Book Fair 2016, on Sept 23 Sept by the Malaysian Ambassador to Japan, Datuk Ahmad Izlan Idris.

The books are ‘Islamic Finance Fundamentals With Applications in Malaysia’ written by Shahriza Osman, Assoc Prof Dr Zahiruddin Ghazali and Dr Syed Mohd Na’im Syed Salim; and ‘The Basics of Islamic Finance With Applications in Malaysia’ by Dr Zaemah Zainuddin and Dr Sabariah Nordin.

“This is the second book published by UUM Press is translated into Japanese. In 2015, the book ‘Politik Bangsa Malaysia’ became a pioneer in internationalising Malaysia and the UUM,” said the UUM in a statement today.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Izlan in his speech at the launch said UUM had vast expertise in Islamic finance and should be a prime mover in efforts to promote it at international level through the publication of books.

“Through the publication of the translated versions of the books, Malaysia has managed to export the science of Islamic financial management to the Japanese people, the majority of whom are non-Muslims, to understand it as an alternative to their financial system.”
