GLOCOL Seminar (#96) -- "The Rise of Halal Business and its Potential"

2013-1-28 (Mon) 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

The word "halal" is an Islamic term that designates an object or action as "permissible" according to Islamic law. These days, particularly in the Islamic world, the rapidly expanding halal industry is making its presence felt in both service and products. Interestingly, this is true not only among Islamic consumers but also non-Islamic consumers and there is potential for global expansion of the halal industry in everyday products and services.

This lecture will deal with the situation and challenges of the halal industry in various parts of the world including Japan.
