The IUG Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, in partnership with the Jordanian Nabaa Foundation for Management and Organization of International Conferences and Exhibitions, has held a three-day scientific conference, entitled " The Role of Entrepreneurship & Freelancing In Promoting Business Sector and Finding Jobs" in Istanbul. 

Over three days, about 20 participants from different countries have participated with papers on various economic issues and entrepreneurship, handling the poverty crisis and unemployment. They have suggested solutions for the most deadly crises that have faced countries so that they could reach sustainable development. The university, as mentioned by the Dean of the faculty Prof. Mohammed Miqdad, is keen to open access the conference's papers on its repository (IUG Space) after conducting required revisions.  

Regarding the objectives of the Conference, Prof. Meqdad clarified that the conference aims at achieving a number of objectives: publicize the importance of entrepreneurship and freelancing in strengthening the private sector and finding jobs. Furthermore, demonstrate the role of business incubators and accelerators in the private sector and finding chances for work. In addition, clarify the role of the Islamic banking and banking sector in enhancing the capabilities of entrepreneurs.

Most importantly, identify the role of women's leadership in the development and providing jobs for the marginalized groups. Studying the role of higher education institutions in promoting the culture of entrepreneurship and activation of freelancing has been given great attention. The participants have also focused on the study of the legal dimensions and the financial and administrative standards and its role in the organization of entrepreneurship and freelancing.

Ultimately, the participants have recommended raising attention about business incubators through multiplying its numbers and activating their role in light of the experiences of previous countries in this field. Furthermore, work on linking the business incubators in Islamic countries together to spread the advantage to the public. In addition, strengthen the business incubators- banks communication so that procedures and guarantees of Islamic financing formulas could be facilitated for entrepreneurs, as well as consider the contracting practices as the primary nerve in the process of social and economic development. Finally, grow the young people perspectives about the culture of investment through facilitating the documentation procedures of financing and getting benefits from loans, while eliminating the forbidden benefits.
