Ladies and Gentlemen,

Selangor is one of the leading State in terms of Halal SMEs in Malaysia. Based on the statistic released by JAKIM and HDC in 2018, Selangor recorded the highest number of Halal certification in Malaysia, with a total of 3,000 application approval from Food & Beverages, Cosmetic, services and etc.

There are two Halal parks that have been granted HALMAS status in the State of Selangor namely as Selangor Halal Park Pulau Indah and also Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ).

The Selangor State Government through Invest Selangor Berhad is also currently in the final process for the preparation of the Selangor Halal Action Plan (SELHAP), which is based on the Vision and Mission to strategically position the state of Selangor as a “Global Halal Hub” – which is through the Infrastructure, as well as the Selangor Halal eco-system

CLOSING

Once again I would like to congratulate Invest Selangor Berhad, UPEN, Selangor Youth Community, related agencies, supporting partners from local and foreign business chambers, trade associations, embassies and companies that have contributed to the success of the Selangor Pavilion 2019. Insha-Allah next years MIHAS will be much bigger with more Selangor SMEs participation.
