1. At the Executive Board discussion of quota and voice reform in July, which built upon two earlier informal seminars, Directors highlighted the need to make significant further progress in the coming months.2 This would enable the Executive Board to report concrete and substantial progress to the Board of Governors at the Annual Meetings. It was envisaged that the period leading up to the Annual Meetings would be used to begin to resolve the remaining areas of difference and focus on the main choices that need to be made. In that vein, staff and management were to consider how the views expressed and guidance provided by Directors so far could be built upon to identify more concretely the scope for specific proposals.

The growing presence of Islamic banking needs to be accompanied by the development of effective regulation and supervision. This paper examines the results of the survey conducted by the International Monetary Fund to document international experiences and country practices related to legal and prudential frameworks governing Islamic banking activities. Although a number of countries have made considerable progress in creating legal, regulatory, and supervisory frameworks that accommodate Islamic banking, there are substantial differences. This paper also identifies a number of challenges faced by regulatory and supervisory agencies regarding Islamic banking.
