“Driven Halal Economy in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals”


The growth of the halal business is steadily expanding on a national and worldwide scale. The growing interest of numerous countries in developing the halal industry indicates a promising future for this sector. In recent decades, religious demand has driven the Halal Economy to a distinct segment of the global supply chain. The consumption pattern associated with halal products is not limited to Muslims alone but also encompasses all economic stakeholders. Non-Muslim consumers prefer halal products for sanitation, quality, hygiene, and safety reasons. In 2021, the equivalent of $2 trillion was spent by 1.9 billion Muslims in the pharmaceutical, food, fashion, cosmetics, travel, media, and recreation industries, which were influenced by Islamic-faith-inspired ethical consumption needs. In 2021, Islamic finance assets are projected to have increased by 7.8% from USD 3.4 trillion in 2020 to USD 3.6 trillion. This expenditure represents an 8.9% increase from the prior year.

Malaysia's Halal Economy sector is a significant contributor to its GDP, but it lacks the capacity to produce high-value-added products and services that would increase its competitiveness in the global Halal Economy market. To leverage this opportunity, emerging players must comprehend the current situation in order to develop and implement growth and sustainability strategies for the industry. The Halal industry, as a component of Islamic economic endeavours, contributes to the government's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) program, aligning with the principles and implementation of development.

Therefore, this conference aims to provide a platform and opportunity for practitioners, scholars, researchers, academicians, graduate students, NGOs and others from all over the world to converge and be proactively engaged in intellectual discourse on Halal Economy discussion, to explore new ideas and present the latest research findings related to all issues on Halal Economy either locally or internationally, in relations to the current phenomena pervading the Muslim communities. The halal industry plays a crucial role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically in addressing poverty, and hunger, promoting healthy lives and well-being, fostering decent work and economic growth, as well as driving industry innovation and infrastructure development, sustainable consumption and production. Subsequently, collaborations among various stakeholders are vital to accomplish the objectives of SDGs.
