Reading Time: 1 minute

halal foodBoosting the synergy between Malaysia and Thailand in the halal industry was the mission of Malaysia’s Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on a visit to Bangkok on August 22.

Both countries want to foster closer ties by tapping into Thailand’s higher capacity of  producing halal products and utilising Malaysia’s Jakim halal brand that is recognised worldwide, as well as improving the marketing and sales network for halal products.

Yassin also visited the Chulalongkorn University’s Halal Science Center on August 22, the country’s largest halal research institute led by Prof Dr. Winai Dahlan.

Three states in Malaysia, Kedah, Perlis and Kelantan, are already actively cooperating with Thailand in the halal food industry. In a latest move, Malaysia has announced that it will set up a halal production and distribution center at the border to Thailand which would import products and materials from Thailand to produce halal foods certified by Malaysia to sell to Malaysian consumers and export to other countries.

Thailand, on its part, has announced new investment promotion measures that are targeted at the southern border provinces which are predominantly Muslim, with a focus on reactivating a halal industry there.
