Jakarta (28/12). Islamic economic development in Indonesia is expected to grow progressively, but it needs the support of the Government. The Indonesian Government should be involved directly to accelerate the promotion of Islamic economic development.
This was opined by KH.Ma’ruf Amin, Chairman of the Indonesian Council of Ulama (MUI), during his visit to the Ministry of Finance office last Tuesday (22/12/09).
At present, says kyai Ma’ruf said that MUI kept trying to socialize the Islamic economy in our society, and in turn it will promote the Islamic economy as part of the society. For that reason it is necessary to gain support from the government to accelerate this socialization in the community.
Furthermore, Kyai Ma’ruf said that compared to Malaysia, the government strongly supports the Islamic economic development by providing adequate regulation and incentives to encourage the development of Islamic economics faster. The Malaysian government is very eager to make his country as an Islamic center for the regional economy in the ASEAN region and even the Islamic world’s economic center.
Moreover, Kyai Ma’ruf is expected that the government to support a more progressive way in this aspect, especially when considering that the majority of Indonesian are Muslims. Of course, it is reasonable if the values of shared in beliefs can be manifested in our economic life. (pkesinteraktif.com)
