Islamic finance eyes Thai infrastructure funding

It seems that the Islamic finance industry is curious in tapping Middle Eastern oil money to help fund Thai infrastructure projects, which could help it win a foothold in a market with only a small Muslim population.
During this week Malaysia issued a $2 billion sukuk, almost 30 % of which was consumed by Middle Eastern investors.
Infrastructure investment is expected to have a great start in Thailand as well as other Southeast Asian countries.
