The Dutch government will look into ways to attract Islamic banking to the Netherlands, the Finance Ministry said.

"We think there are chances for the Dutch financial sector," said Finance Minister Wouter Bos in a letter answering questions from lawmakers.

"Dubai and London are developing into the international centres for Islamic banking. The Netherlands are fit to also play a role here," Bos added.

The Finance Ministry signalled an increase in the Netherlands in financial products which comply with Islam's ban on interest and the trading of debt.

Minister for Integration Ella Vogelaar told Dutch daily Trouw that Islamic culture is rooting in the Dutch culture.
