“Specifically, this conference aims to make UNISSA as the centre of excellence for research in the Halalan Tayyiban industry, as well as a provider of professional services in advancing the industry, as well as materialising the country’s aspiration of becoming a global halal hub,” it said.

UNISSA will also be hosting the International Conference on Islamic Leadership and Management 2016. The conference, which carries the theme “Dynamics of Sunnah-Based Leadership and Management”, will take place on August 6.
