The Philippines has gained membership to the International Halal Accreditation Forum (IHAF), a development seen to further spur the local halal industry by strengthening trade between the Philippines and other member countries.
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) said the Philippine Accreditation Bureau (PAB) on Wednesday signed a full membership agreement with the IHAF.
The agency said being a full member of the IHAF gives DTI-PAB voting rights at the general assembly and committee meetings that could be highly beneficial to the Philippine halal industry.
“This membership is also seen to further boost Halal trade between the Philippines and other IHAF member countries,” the DTI said.
