Malaysia’s Head of Mission in Taiwan, Datuk Adeline Leong said she hopes to bring Taiwan and Malaysia together by getting more friendship pacts signed between cities in both Taiwan and Malaysia. Another important task is that she said the government can do so much but other NGOs such as Rotary Club, Lions Club, etc. can do their part citing the example that members of two Rotary sister-clubs of Taiwan and Malaysia have visited each other for the last 27 years.
To tap potential-laden Muslim markets, Taiwan has recently aimed to create a halal industry and Taiwan Halal Center was established in April 2017 by TAITRA (Taiwan External Trade Development Council). Datuk Adeline Leong said Malaysia tops the world’s largest producer and exporter of multi-billion dollar halal food products. Taiwan can learn from Malaysia in the area the certification of halal food and products.
