SHAH ALAM, Jan 17 — The second edition of the Selangor International Halal Convention (Selhac) has targeted business matchings worth RM50 million.
Some 8,000 visitors are expected to throng Selhac 2023, which will be held from March 10 to March 12 this year at the Kuala Lumpur World Trade Centre.
Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the RM50 million target was based on the business matchings value of RM38 million recorded during Selhac 2022.
“This year’s convention will involve the participation of more than 200 exhibitors comprising local and international companies,” he said after launching Selhac 2023 here, today.
Amirudin said the programme will focus on six components, namely business forum, Islamic finance, exhibition, business matching, halal supply chain, and digital marketing.
“This convention also covers various clusters including food and beverage, pharmacy and healthcare, raw materials and halal ingredients, beauty products, as well as tourism and hospitality.
“For industry players, this programme offers room to explore business opportunities, besides enabling them to forge collaborations among themselves,” he said.
For Selhac 2023, the small-and-medium enterprises under the state government agencies will also be given opportunities to expand their products.
“Some of the entrepreneurs have huge potential, so we will select those among the participants from Yayasan Hijrah, Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS), Platform Selangor (Plats), and several others.
“We will give them the chance to explore as they may not have the opportunity to introduce their products previously,” Amirudin said.
