The aim of the WIEF-UiTM Occasional Paper was to contribute to the intellectual property of the WIEF-UiTM International Centre which was established in 2007 as a capacity building initiative for the Muslim world.
The WIEF Foundation received overwhelming response to its request for the submission of articles for the inaugural publication. A total of 30 articles were received, but only 10 articles were finally selected by the Editorial Board.
The 1st edition of the WIEF-UiTM Occasional Paper was published in October 2012 with academic papers on business, economics, and finance. It was distributed local and international institutions as well as disseminated during the WIEF international outreach programmes and activities.
