As Halal increasingly becomes a world-wide market phenomenon, specialist market information and expertise become an important factor for the development of a viable Islamic economy and successful positioning in this fast-developing international market sector. This Department, which operates under the supervision of the Vice President- Islamic Economy supports and advises African Governments, Public and Private sector entities and industry players in Africa on the development of Islamic Economy.
