In early August the Western Cape Province, the City of Cape Town, Wesgro and other supporting partners officially announced the launch of the inaugural Africa Halal Week 2018, scheduled to take place between 15 -17 October. The event will foster business links and conversations, and highlight opportunities spanning across sectors such as tourism, trade, investment, banking, film and media promotion, fashion, cuisine and more.

Key events include a Halal products and services exhibition with business matchmaking, export market access seminars, a Modest Fashion Forum Market, a one-day investment conference, a tourism conference, and info on the Western Cape as a Muslim-friendly film and media destination.

To date, 40 international buyers, CEOs and key opinion leaders operating in the global halal industry will be participating in Africa Halal Week.

“We’ve grown the Halal Market by over R900 million since 2015,” Minister of Economic Opportunities, Alan Winde, said. “Under Project Khulisa, the Western Cape alone is responsible for exporting over R10 billion in Halal products. We look forward to nurturing this already lucrative market to see it expand even further within the province, creating much needed jobs and boosting the Cape’s economy.”
