Indonesia Accepts Jakim Halal Certification - Mustapa
The Indonesian government has accepted the Halal logo and certificate issued by the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim), said International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Mustapa Mohamed. He said the development brought relief to producers of Malaysian Halal products who are facing difficulties penetrating the Indonesian market due to Halal certification.
