KUALA LUMPUR – The Hanoi Trade Corporation (Hapro) participated in the 14th Malaysia International Halal Showcase (MIHAS 2017) in the country’s capital city Kuala Lumpur from April 5 to 8.
Trần Thị Mỹ Hạnh, deputy director of Hapro’s HCM City branch, said the company wanted to study customers’ interests and demands during its first time at the event, while seeking partners to expand co-operation in the import and export of Halal products.
Halal products are products permitted to be consumed according to Islamic law.
Some of Hapro’s products such as candies and spices, along with cashew nuts, lotus seeds and taro from other Vietnamese businesses, were highly appreciated by international visitors.
Nguyễn Sơn Hà, counsellor of the Vietnam Trade Office in Malaysia, said the Halal market had immense potential for Vietnamese businesses, especially agricultural product exporters. The office would continue to support local businesses to enter Malaysia’s Halal market, he pledged.
MIHAS is a large-scale event that exhibits foods and services according to Islamic customs. It drew 580 businesses from 33 countries and territories this year, including from ASEAN, the Middle East and Europe. — VNS
