  • Urge Arab insurance companies to raise their retention levels in line with their capital
  • Develop risk management systems to ensure prudent management
  • Regulate takaful and resolve challenges which hinder the development of Islamic insurance by setting out a clear strategy for takaful
  • Confirm the importance of microinsurance
  • Work towards creating higher professional degrees in takaful.
