Along with Dr Sunny, Dr Alex Sultan from Halal Chambers Philippines was part of the panel.

Focusing on the halal segment, Dr Sunny spoke on the global halal industry and its importance to the Maldives in terms of the rapidly growing halal travel component. Dr Sunny mentioned that given Maldives is a 100% Muslim country, the existing infrastructure is already well equipped to cater to the market, but it’s a matter of how it is being promoted.
