Malaysia and Japan have signed a memorandum on halal-cooperation to pave the way for more business opportunities in the halal industry between the two countries.
“The platform will be the most effective way of promoting Malaysian halal products and services using the proper structure of government-to-government partnership.” - Malaysian Minister
“Furthermore, the huge and growing number of Muslims, which currently constitute around 24.4 per cent of the world’s population ensures steady demand for halal products and services,” The Minister added.
As one of the key initiatives, Malaysia will organise a Halal Expo from Jan 24-26, 2019 in Kuala Lumpur.
