The 9th World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF), held for the first time outside of the Muslim World came to London at the end of October. At the opening ceremony, His Excellency, Professor Dr Boediono, Vice President of Indonesia said:
“The world is a fast changing place where all sorts of novel interactions and new forms of partnership are sprouting at the same time, we are also witnessing a growing number of conflicts brewing in many parts of this planet. Many of such regions happen to be where our Muslim brothers live.”

This article captures some of my thoughts and observations whilst covering the event - as a Londoner with a press pass, busy blogging for the Huffington Post.
