7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

The UAE is work­ing with South Korea to en­sure more of its cui­sine is ha­lal. The Emi­rates Au­thor­ity for Stan­dard­i­s­a­tion and Metrol­ogy (ESMA) dis­cussed ap­ply­ing the same reg­u­la­tions used in the UAE with a del­e­ga­tion from the Korean Em­bassy, na­tional news agency WAM re­ported. The move is part of the au­thor­ity’s plan to en­cour­age more in­ter­na­tional part­ners to ap­ply UAE reg­u­la­tions on ha­lal prod­ucts. It says the reg­u­la­tions are the first of their kind in the world. Ab­dulla Al Mae eni, Direc­tor-Gen­eral of ESMA, said that the au­thor­ity will pro­vide ex­per­tise in the area for Korea, which seeks to dou­ble the size of its ex­ports of ha­lal prod­ucts from about $680 mil­lion (Dhs2.5 bil­lion) an­nu­ally to $1.23 bil­lion (Dhs4.5 bil­lion) in 2017.
