halal_productsPoland aims to enter a cooperation with Malaysia in the halal business, according to Poland’s ambassador to Malaysia, Adam Jelonek.

He said Poland was among the  few European countries that have been granted the halal certificate by the Malaysian authority two years ago, using this status to produce halal food and a variety of halal cosmetic products, Malaysian news agency Bernama reported.

The ambassador was signing a double taxation avoidance treaty with Malaysia in Putrajaya on July 8.

Jelonek also said the Mufti of Poland had visited Malaysia recently and had discussions with the Malaysia Department of Islamic Development on halal products. He added the halal cooperation with Malaysia would not only be in terms of export and import, but also for direct investment.

He also said that Poland was “in the midst of discussions with the state government of Sarawak in relation to the chemical industry.”

From January to April 2013, the total bilateral trade between Malaysia and Poland reached around $220 million, an increase of 44.2 per cent compared with the same period in 2012, with the trade balance in favour of Poland.

The main products exported from Malaysia to Poland are electrical and electronics, rubber, chemicals, wood and crude rubber while the main imports included optical and scientific equipment, metal products, rubber products, processed food and electrical and electronic products.
