Pakistan at Halal International Conference
Asad Sajjad, Secretary General and CEO, Halal Development Council, Pakistan, was declared as the best speaker at the Halal International Conference and Expo in Thailand. He delivered his presentation on the ‘Importance of Halal Certification and Branding’ and was the only person invited from Pakistan at this International Forum that was attended by Halal Certifiers and Agenda Promoters from 14 countries including Thailand, Switzerland, Australia, Malaysia, USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Japan, Taiwan, South Africa, Turkey, Vietnam and Pakistan.
Organized by the Central Islamic Council of Thailand, the conference attracted Muslim scholars, businessmen and members of the Muslim community from all corners of the country. Islam is increasing very rapidly in Thailand’s 66 million population and almost 14 percent of Thais are now Muslim (nearly 9.29 million Muslims with 3,650 mosques all over Thailand). As such, the demand for Halal Certified Food and other Halal products is increasing in Thailand among Muslim and nonMuslim consumers.
