Dr. Hussain Sunny Umar has represented Maldives at the “Halal Expo Indonesia Conference” held from October 5 - 29, 2023. The annual conference is Indonesia’s largest summit that acts as an economic catalyst for the Muslim community at both national and global levels.
Dr. Sunny represented Maldives in a panel discussion addressing "Exploring Halal - Friendly Travel Destinations and Experiences". The panel took place on October 28, 2023 at the Jakarta Convention Center.
Along with Dr. Sunny, Dr. Alex Sultan from Halal Chambers Phillipine was part of the panel.
Focusing on the halal segment, Dr. Sunny spoke on the global halal industry and its importance to Maldives in terms of the rapidly growing halal travel component.
