KARACHI: Halal Development Council (HDC) will be holding the first Global Halal Congress in Pakistan with the theme ‘Discover Pakistan’s Halal Potential.’
The Halal Congress is an international conference to introduce Pakistan to the leading Halal industry experts, global Halal agenda promoters and international Halal certifiers.
The congress will be held in Karachi on December 4, 2010, and will be attended by more than 30 renowned scholars, scientists and Halal authorities from more than 20 countries.
The congress will enable business professionals from banking, insurance, food and beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, tourism, logistics, and packaging to identify the investment, joint venture and trading opportunities in Pakistan.
The Halal brand is globally recognised as a symbol of ‘good quality product.’ Although Pakistan is a Muslim country, it is not known to the world as a supplier of certified Halal products and thus its share in this trillion dollar global Halal business is negligible.
Pakistan’s strength is a 100 per cent Halal production base, with over 170 million consumers within Pakistan and a direct access to a grand total of 470 million Halal consumers in Afghanistan, Central Asia and Middle East. The conference will aim to propagate this to the Halal agenda promoters globally to see how to take advantage of Pakistan’s strength for the development of Halal trade.
Halal Development Council (HDC) is the only NGO in Pakistan that works for the development of Halal economy. Its main promoters include reputable scholars, technocrats, jurists, diplomats and entrepreneurs.
