MILF to investors: Come after peace is fully restored in Mindanao

January 24, 2013 News: “Come and invest in the Bangsamoro until peace is fully restored in this region.


This was the main message of MILF Chairman Al Haj Murad Ebrahim to prospective investors including foreign businessmen in the Bangsamoro after the successful signing of the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro last October 15 in Manila.

The message was part of the Murad’s speech delivered during the eighth World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) in Johore Baru in Malaysia last December 4-6.


Murad was accompanied by three senior leaders of the MILF when he attended the forum.
The forum, which was initiated in 2003 as a business-centric complement to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit in Kuala Lumpur, had now grown into a non-political and non-religious platform focusing on the role of women and youth leaders.
The annual forum had been held three times in Kuala Lumpur, and also in Pakistan, Kuwait, Indonesia, and Kazakhstan.

London was likely to become host next year.

Murad’s presence in the forum had helped spur socio-economic development and encourage especially Malaysian businesses to look at the Bangsamoro region for investment opportunities.

About 70 speakers from 28 countries had attended the WIEF at Persada International Convention Centre.

The MILF leader had been very frank in telling would-be-investors that now is not the right time to invest in the Bangsamoro, saying the MILF and the government are still trying very much to solve the bloody mess in Mindanao.

He stressed that real peace can only come in the Bangsamoro if the current peace negotiation succeeds and all agreements would fully be implemented and the parties have signed the “exit agreement” marking the formal end of the conflict.
