If food, restaurant and hotel operators feel that law enforcement from JAKIM on Halal is a burden to them, think again as Halal industry is worth multi billion dollar . Now according to Global Muslim Lifestyle Travel Market: Landscape & Consumer Needs Study, Malaysia is the top destination for Muslim destination along with Turkey and UAE. So of course we don’t want to be overtake by Singapore, Russia, China, France, Thailand, and Italy because they are the next six markets.
The study also stated that Muslim tourism market was worth US$126.1bil (RM390bil) last year. Well with the tightened law enforcement about Halal in Malaysia by JAKIM can be a good effort to boost the outbound Muslim tourism for this country. Tourist can enjoy broad spectrum of Halal food here from International franchise like KFC,McDonalds, five star International Hotel chain and of course local food stall.
