Halal Middle East will be held at Expo Center Sharjah on 16-18 December 2013, including Halal Expo and Halal Congress Middle East.
An upcoming halal event in the region is set to open up better opportunities for regional players in the US$1.8 billion Islamic finance industry.
Underscoring the galloping pace of Islamic finance, Emirates Islamic Bank (EIB), one of the leading Islamic financial institutions in the region, will support the 2nd OIC Halal Middle East Exhibition and Congress.
For its second edition, while Halal ME will be a comprehensive sourcing point for all halal products, from food to pharmaceuticals and insurance to tourism, the Halal Congress will offer a gathering point for food producers, exporters, importers, dealers as well as scholars and experts on halal markets and standards.
A leading player in the corporate market, Emirates Islamic Bank was recognized at the 2013 Banker Middle East Industry Awards for providing practical, highly cost-effective, Shariah-compliant solutions coupled with excellent customer service, through dedicated relationship teams in six corporate centres across the UAE.
