MALAYSIA - SETTING THE AGENDA Y.A.B Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Razak Keynote Address, 21 June 2010
“We need to think beyond industries and move to the larger realm of a Halal economy…a value-based economy rooted in fairness, integrity and trust” One of the key issues to be deliberated in 2011 is the progress of the inevitable convergence of Halal products and Islamic Financial services. These two the shariah-based industries form the foundations of an emerging Halal Market Economy, and Malaysia, as a strategic stakeholder in both sectors, is the perfect location to explore this exciting new platform. The WHF 2011 will bring a renewed spirit of creative vision and cutting-edge thinking to the Halal industry. With the IHI Alliance now fully in charge of the technical issues relating to Halal standards development, certification and accreditation, the WHF 2011 will explore the next 5-year horizon of potential within this ‘values-based’ Halal marketplace.
Key sessions will focus on: • Progress reports from WHF and IHI projects world wide • Islamic Finance in the Halal Industry • Leveraging on Halal Values in mainstream markets • Coming Trends in the Halal sector • The Role of the media in changing perceptions about Islamic values • The rise of Halal friendly-travel and hospitality
STRENGTHENING GLOBAL HALAL MARKET
NORTH AMERICA USD15.3 BILLION
Europe USD69.3 BILLION Asia USD418.1 BILLION Africa USD155.9 BILLION
“Estimated size of global halal food sector for 2011 is USD 661 billion”
Central & South America USD820 MILLION Australia USD1.6 BILLION
Strong emerging sectors include: Halal market sectors in many parts of the world continue to remain recession-proof, and to outpace the growth of related mainstream market sectors. The world’s 1.8 billion Muslims (close to 25% of the world’s population) are becoming better educated, more discerning and with a higher household income, and have triggered a worldwide demand for mainstream products and services that are in line with Islamic values.

World Halal Forum 2010 The 5th World Halal Forum held on June 21 and 22 2010 at KL Convention Centre was a huge success opening to a highly charged and fully packed hall of over 800 delegates and industry stalwarts from over 35 countries across the world. For some of the repeat delegates, the feedback was that this was the best World Halal Forum held to date! As the prestigious gathering place for all experts, scholars and players in the industry, WHF 2010 yet again provided an excellent networking platform for all participants. Malaysian Prime Minister YAB Dato' Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak who delivered the keynote address during the opening ceremony urged the industry to think bigger as a Halal Economy: â€œWe need to think beyond industries and move into the larger realm of a Halal Economy. A value based economy rooted in trust, integrity and fairness. And why not? Halal has thrived and will continue to thrive on innovation. Furthermore, Muslims account for one fifth of the global population, with between 1.4 and 1.8 billion spread across 148 countries worldwide, and these numbers continue to grow.â€? Host of WHF 2010, International Halal Integrity Alliance (IHI Alliance), announced and presented four published Global Halal Standards (ICCI-IHI Alliance Halal Standard), which were available for purchase at the forum.

WORLD HALAL FORUM ACCOMPLISHMENTS
World Halal Forum Europe 2010 WORLD HALAL EUROPE 2010 PERFORMANCE Held at the Earl’s Court Conference Centre in London on 10-11 November, the 2nd World Halal Forum Europe was held with the theme “Halal Products and Services – Going Mainstream” Highlights from the WHFE included 1. There is a growing concern that the proposed ‘Amendment 205’ due to be presented before the European Parliament bill to enforce labelling of meat from un-stunned slaughter will stigmatise Halal and Kosher meat products and this does not comply with World Trade Organisation guidelines on preventing unnecessary barriers to trade. 2. There is a pressing need for the formation of independent national accreditation agencies that will develop clear standards, advise, monitor and regulate the activities of the various Halal certification bodies, particularly in the non-Muslim world.
6. Halal, if managed intelligently, has the potential to be a significant engine of growth for the UK economy. In the light of the current economic climate, these issues needs to be explored, not sensationalised.
3. Clearer labelling for Halal food is necessary to enable consumers, both Muslim and non-Muslim, to make informed choices as to what they are buying and eating.
4. The mainstream media’s handling of the Halal food issues in the Western world is consistently characterised by misinformation, bias and provocative language that fans the flames of controversy without offering any solutions. There needs to be more balanced input from responsible media, including the Muslim media, to provide a clear and unbiased picture of Halal-related subjects. 5. The extent of the domination of the Halal food market by multinational companies is becoming ever clearer. There is a pressing need for more Muslims to get involved in this industry, from the perspective of food production as well as research, innovation and investment.
The WHFE drafted a formal declaration to oppose amendment 205 that was sent to Muslim Members of the European Parliament to lobby in Brussels. (Amendment 205 was dropped and was not passed into law) A four-way agreement was signed by The International Halal Integrity Alliance (IHI), The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), The American Halal Association (AHA) and the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB). These four bodies will collaborate on issues relating to Halal Standards development and the formation of a network of national Halal Accreditation bodies to ensure greater integrity throughout the supply chain.

WHF Europe was held for the first time ever outside Malaysia -- with the aim of tapping to the enormous potential of Halal market in the European region. During the two-day session of WHF Europe, participants and speakers agreed that Halal is no longer a taboo in Europe as awareness on Halal products and certification has increased in the last couple of years. Advertising campaigns on Halal products, certification and labels are also on the rise in Europe, particularly in France, which has an estimated five million Muslims population. WHF EUROPE RESOLUTIONS: • The World Halal Forum recognises the importance of animal welfare in the production of Halal food especially in the context of religious slaughter. The forum has resolved that organisations and communities involved in Halal food production should explore ways to reduce pain, distress and other welfare problems in the sourcing and treatment of animals during rearing, transport and slaughter. The World Halal Forum should collaborate with academic researchers and other experts in investigating the welfare implication and acceptability of different practices including pre-slaughter methods of restraint and applications to minimise pain and distress at the time of slaughter. • Halal values and principles are in line with those of Fair Trade. The forum resolved to work towards the integration of Halal with Fair Trade. • The forum resolved to work towards a European Halal Regulations and Accreditation system, starting with a single country as a pilot project, with the country proposed being the United Kingdom.
