Message from the High Commissioner of Malaysia

“I am pleased to provide this message of support to the Halal Expo Australia 2016. Malaysia is actively involved in promoting the halal certification process internationally. We have excellent relations with the Australian Islamic organisations, particularly the Halal certification organisations providing Halal certifications to the Halal industry dato'zainal photoin Australia.”

“In this regard, the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) is working closely with Halal Certifications bodies in Australia. Halal Exhibition in Australia is a great initiative by the organiser and very timely indeed. Malaysian Consulate staff in Sydney attended the first Halal Expo held in Sydney in April 2015 and they were very impressed to see the significant interest of the members of Australian Islamic Community, Groups and Halal Businesses in the event.”

“The Government of Malaysia is committed to create opportunities for Malaysian exporters of Halal Products & Services especially in Australia and Halal Expo Australia can be a worthy occasion for Malaysian business community to participate in.”

“I fully support Halal Expo Australia 2016 being held in Melbourne and Sydney where an international halal conference is also being held in Sydney. I also encourage further contribution and participation of the Malaysian Community in Australia in Halal Expo Australia in 2016 and beyond.”

“I would like to congratulate the organiser for holding Halal Expo Australia as another annual festivity for Australian multicultural society and wish them the very best as well as a successful event in 2016.”
