The government urges academicians, financial institutions, and regulatory bodies to work together in realising the vision of the future and sustainable humane economy, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Anwar, who is also Finance Minister, said in the premier address at the International Conference on Islamic Economics and Finance on Monday (Feb 20) that this collaboration must be met with an 'ummatic' commitment with joint efforts to help realise this vision for a better future.

Anwar emphasised that the future economy would place the people at its centre, which contributes to developing a caring, compassionate society that could support comprehensive social safety nets, investing in community development and abolish poverty and inequality.
