New Straits Times - - Business - Ber­nama

Malaysia Ex­ter­nal Trade De­vel­op­ment Corp (Ma­trade) is op­ti­mistic that next month’s Malaysia In­ter­na­tional Ha­lal Show­case (Mi­has 2017) will gen­er­ate sales of more than the RM1.14 bil­lion achieved last year.

Ma­trade chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Dr Mohd Shahreen Madros Zain­ooreen said the ha­lal in­dus­try had been gain­ing strong mo­men­tum over the past decade and much of the ro­bust growth was driven by high

de­mand from Mus­lims and nonMus­lims.

“Year-on-year, we ex­pect be­tween four and eight per cent growth in ha­lal ex­ports. Last year, we man­aged to record a growth of 4.2 per cent,” he told a press con­fer­ence at the un­veil­ing of Mi­has 2017’s logo, here, yes­ter­day.

Shahreen said the new logo re­flected Mi­has’s progress in keep­ing up with the times and mar­ket dy­nam­ics.
