Malaysia and Indonesia rush to slice up $3tn global halal market

KUALA LUMPUR/JAKARTA -- Japan may have a minuscule Muslim population, but the country still represents the way forward for Malaysia's Faisal Ahmad Fadzil and his line of halal-certified bath products and massage oils. "If you're successful in Japan," Faisal said, "you can go anywhere." Malaysian exporters of Shariah-compliant products aim to go anywhere and everywhere, capitalizing on a global Islamic economy projected to be worth over $3 trillion by 2023. But with such an enormous opportunity comes formidable competition. Indonesia, home of the world's largest Muslim population, is looking to mount a serious challenge. The Arabic term "halal," which means "permissible," covers everything that conforms to Islamic law as written in the Quran. The best-known rules prohibit pork and alcohol, but the scripture can be applied to all sorts of…

Should Sarawak start an airline?

Should Sarawak start an airline?

Aviation and Aerospace, Digital Economy, Entrepreneurs, Industry 4.0, Sarawak, Smart City
LIKE the Sarawak government and many ordinary Sarawakians, the state’s tour and travel operators and the business community in general seem to finally have had enough of our national airlines. They joined the growing chorus publicly criticising the airlines, in particular AirAsia. What caused the local travel industry to finally snap was the decision by AirAsia to abruptly cancel the Kuching-Shenzhen flight at the end of the month, without prior consultation with the state government (which reportedly subsidised the flights) or local industry players. Various reasons have been given for the cancellation but none are very convincing. This is not the first time the low-cost airline has left Sarawak air travellers and travel industry in a lurch. Some years earlier, it, too, abruptly cancelled Kuching-Jakarta flights despite promising load factors.…

KUCHING: Innovative and Creative Group (KIK) teams from the public sector are encouraged to join startup companies as platforms to market their products or services. Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said over the years, the KIK teams had come up with innovative and unique products, making it timely for Sarawakians to compete in the global market. Speaking at the closing of the Sarawak-level KIK convention at UCSI Hotel here on Wednesday evening, Abang Johari said he’s amazed at the number of products or services which were nurtured at a startup company called ‘Plug and Play’ in California’s Silicon Valley, USA. “There are companies from South Korea, Singapore and Indonesia under the Plug and Play (accelerator programmes), but no Malaysian companies.” He said if our own products were…

CHOOSING the right course to study after secondary school is one of the most important decisions in life. With an array of courses available, the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable education counsellor is invaluable after the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) examinations. Regardless of whether school-leavers are from the arts or science stream, it is important to select a discipline that matches interests. Malaysian Institute of Human Resource Management human resource adviser Geh Thuan Hooi said the programme of choice must be relevant now and in the future or graduates risk being left behind. “With the advent of Industry 4.0 where artificial intelligence (AI) will replace many present jobs, anything related to data analytics, information technology and robotics are good fields to venture into.…
