Malaysia’s Halal International Selangor (HIS) is set to be a flagship halal training and education centre, Bernama reported. The centre will provide both face-to-face and online training.
This follows the signing of a memorandum of agreement between HIS and the Halal Academy, at the Malaysia International Halal Showcase in Kuala Lumpur yesterday (4 April).
On the significance of this, HIS Chief Operating Officer Zulkarnine Shah Zainal Abidin said: “This collaboration signifies a synergistic step forward for the benefit of the halal industry by being able to fully support the Malaysian Islamic Development Department’s role by facilitating knowledge development in delivering world-class halal professionals.”
As part of the agreement signed, the halal training will be both comprehensive and accessible via the Halal Academy’s online learning portal.
Zulkarnine added that this “strategic move between HIS and the Halal Academy would spark the nucleus of Selangor’s halal human capital development.”
He also said the collaboration would “further enhance efforts to position Selangor as the leader in the halal industry.”
“We believe this MoA will help fortify the efforts made by Invest Selangor and the state government in attracting investors from around the world to view Selangor as the catalyst of growth and development in the halal industry for the region.”
