News From : DagangHalal.com (06 May 2009)

The sixth Malaysia International Halal Showcase (MIHAS) 2009 which took off Wednesday at the Matrade Exhibition and Convention Centre here has received the highest number of foreign participation thus far, Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Mustapa Mohamed said.

“This year’s response has been better in terms of number of booths and foreign participation,” he told Bernama when visiting the exhibition today.

Among the new countries participating this year are Palestine, Japan, France and Tunisia who will promote their halal products at the event.

For Mustapa Atelier des Parfums, a well known perfume company from France, this is the first time it is exhibiting its world class perfume at the event.

MIHAS 2009 is a leading exhibition platform for showcasing halal products and services organised by Malaysia External Trade and Development Corporation (Matrade).

“It is also a venue for establishing trade ties among participants in the global halal trade to jointly expand the halal market amid the current economic downturn,” Mustapa said.

More than 600 buyers from 40 countries have also registered to participate in the business matching sessions to be held during the event.

In conjunction with MIHAS 2009, which will end on May 10, the Halal Industry Development Corporation will also launch the World Halal 2009 Research conference which will end on May 8.

The conference is to serve as an avenue for scientists, researchers, and academicians to discuss and share ideas on the latest research findings, technologies and trends as well as challenges facing the halal industry.
