INDUSTRY.co.id - Makassar- Representatives of economic and sharia banking actors from 18 provinces in eastern Indonesia (KTI) attended the KTI Economic Festival (FESyar) in Makassar.

"The implementation of the Shariah Economic Festival in South Sulawesi is a series from the Indonesia Shari'a Economic Festival (ISEF) which will be held in Surabaya on 8-11 November 2017," said the Organizer who is also the Head of Bank Indonesia (BI) South Sulewasei Bambang Kusmiarso in Makassar, Friday (8/25/2017)

According to him, Fesyiar followed by representatives of 18 provinces in Eastern Indonesia in order to encourage the development of Islamic finance and economic activities in the real sector.

Similar activities were also carried out by FESyar implementers in Bandung City and Medan City to collect provinces in western and central Indonesia.

The implementation of the first Fesyar in KTI, Bambang continued, became an important momentum considering several things such as the potential of Islamic tourism which is still not explored optimally in KTI.

"The potential of zakat and endowments in eastern Indonesia is quite large, with the total ZIS revenue only in South Sulawesi during 2015 reaching Rp80.3 billion," he said.

Of these, the composition of Rp59.50 billion comes from zakat fitrah followed by Rp5.12 billion from zakat mal, and Rp15.70 billion from infaq.

In addition, there is a special potential that can be developed such as in South Sulawesi which has 10,440 wakaf lands with an area of ​​1029 million square meters. Approximately 23.35 percent of the national wakaf land and 53 percent of which have been certified waqf.

While the potential of students in South Sulawesi, reaching 66,217 people spread in 294 boarding schools or 2nd largest in KTI and the ninth national.

The total Muslim population of South Sulawesi reached 7.2 million people, equivalent to 28.56 percent of the Muslim population in Eastern Indonesia.

While FESyar's own background is to further introduce to the public the importance of developing sharia economy in Indonesia especially in KTI.

Bambang said that sharia economy has not been developed so that FESyar is expected to increase knowledge and information to the public about sharia economic system so that sharia economy in Indonesia can run and develop.
