Malaysia-East Java entrepreneurs urged to develop Halal industry

Malaysian Halal products entrepreneurs and their counterparts in East Java have huge potential in developing the Halal industry by using high-technology concepts.
Halal Industry Development Corporation (HDC) Chairman Tan Sri Syed Jalaludin Syed Salim said the agency is ready to assist such endeavour to attain win-win synergies.
HDC can bring Halal product entrepreneurs from Malaysia on a special visit to East Java to introduce the country's Halal industry concept following the huge interest shown by entrepreneurs in East Java.
"They want to develop industrial park, and if we can offer assistance to them, this is better.
HDC can introduce the Halal park concept and this will be good joint venture between Malaysia and Indonesia," he told Bernama.
Syed Jalaludin was among the Malaysia small and medium enterprise (SME) delegation under the guidance of SME Corp Malaysia and HDC on a two-day visit to Surabaya.
The visit was led by Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed aimed at strengthening the bilateral trade and investment with entrepreneurs in Surabaya and East Java.
The HDC Chairman said Malaysia should focus on making more business visits to Asean countries such as Indonesia as the country not only has a huge market but its entrepreneurs want to collaborate with Malaysian businesses.
"Indonesia has a large population, huge market, many resources while Malaysia has high technology...this is where we can work together.
"We also have more intellectual properties, so we can attain win-win synergies," he said.
Syed Jalaludin believed that the collaboration can achieve success as expected and it can start in East Java.
