On Wednesday, 21st August 2019, IFCCI held our Forum Group Discussion, focusing on Halal Lifestyle and Regulations as our main topic.
Mr. Sapta Nirwandar, widely known as Indonesia's former Deputy Minister of Tourism, who is now the Chairman and Founder of Indonesia Halal Lifestyle Center was our first speaker. Mr. Sapta provided his research and knowledge on the economical and industrial aspects of Halal lifestyle, and the potential it holds for the Indonesian economy. Our next speaker, Dr. Hj. Subandriyah MM, is a representative of the Halal Product Assurance Body that works under direct order of the Ministry of Religious Affairs. Mr. Christopher Johnston served as the moderator of our discussion.
This discourse was important to be brought up, considering the rising curiosity towards Indonesia's newest Halal regulations that will soon be implemented. Several guests were present during the discussion. They contributed several questions that were directed to the speakers, resulting in an interactive and informative discussion.
