Delegates followed 12 presentations by renowned speakers from the US, UK, Europe, Africa, and Asia over two days. The Summit covers topics of Innovation Empowerment, Best Practices, Halal Business Financing, Branding and Marketing.

“In selecting the innovation theme for this year’s WHR Summit, we aimed to promote a special thrust in support of building a foundation to stimulate the need to innovate and looked for new and improved products and services that will enhance the quality of halal productivity and performance, It is for the benefit of its industry players, technocrats and entrepreneurs, both local and international,” said Dato’ Seri Jamil Bidin, chief executive officer of HDC.

Participants discussed and exchanged ideas on research findings, emerging technologies, trends, marketing, branding and other issues and challenges that will accelerate to the growth and development of the halal industry.

“This is HDC’s 5th year hosting the prestigious summit with the objective of inspiring halal related research findings in commercially visible areas along the Halal Supply chain, which can further spur competitiveness and boost economic growth. Essentially we need to promote and instill a stronger drive towards the innovation phenomenon and leverage on any opportunity that presents a transformation possibility,” added Dato’ Seri Jamil.

“It is time to provide fast linkages between technology innovation and product or service outcomes. There is tremendous opportunity to realise the full commercial value of promising projects or innovations. The Summit will be in search for catalyst-matchings especially for our halal SME businesses. It will also prompt capacity building, the development of knowledge and the general improvement of the quality of life of the people, via better products and services,” he added.

“We strongly believe that commercialisation linkages we form with others in the halal sectors will narrow all obstacles and issues, be it in terms of technology, infrastructure, logistics, knowledge procurement, training and even branding. It is the key objective of HDC to nurture not only growing business entities but to provide them with definite pathways towards completing their own individual Halal ecosystems,” concluded Jamil.

For 2012, HDC aims to fulfill its goals for halal integrity, halal industry development and halal brand promotion with the view of moving to the next stage. HDC’s masterplan is designed to create the most conducive environment for the industry to grow.
