DUBAI: Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, and General Supervisor of the Dubai Capital of Islamic Economy initiative, yesterday honoured the winners of the fifth Islamic Economy Awards.

Launched by the Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre, DIEDC, and organised by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Dubai Chamber, and Thomson Reuters, the award ceremony was held in the presence of ministers and heads of government departments. The awards were presented to a cross-section of global and local business establishments in recognition of their innovative, world-class business initiatives and ideas that are sharia-compliant and contribute to the social and economic welfare of the Muslim population.
