Conference Theme

This year WHC 2019 will feature the theme on Fostering a Robust Halal Economy: Global Integration and Ethical Practise to reflect upon the uncertainties raised in building the future of Islamic Economy and aimed at accelerating competitive and inclusive economies around the world by enhancing the understanding of potentials of an Islamic Economy; facilitating public-private collaboration to improve competitiveness and inclusive growth performance of particular economies and regions; building a foundation to network; and collaborating with stakeholders across the world even in countries where Muslims are the minority. 

The Halal industry has always been of paramount importance to Malaysia as a Muslim-majority country. The Muslim population worldwide translates into a rising international demand for Halal products and services. Halal is accepted as a truly global industry and this ever-increasing globalization represents a vibrant opportunity for the global economy.

Nevertheless, it also presents several challenges, to do with global attitudes and rapid technological change; hence it causes important responsibilities concerning the ethical governance and its harmonised regulation worldwide. With the current technology revolution, global integration becomes sudden and borderless. This is where by fostering a true Halal Economy, these challenges can be diminished.

The WHC 2019 would like to take realization forward in demonstrating that the Halal Economy has a vital role to assume its potential within the wider global economic returns.

Halal stakeholders from more than 50 countries are expected to be at the 2-day Conference. Among attendees include Government and Industry Leaders, Halal Industry Players, Media, Academicians and Researchers as well as Business and Trade Associations.
