His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam took a closer look at the 2nd Borneo International Halal Showcase, BIHAS. Also present were His Majesty's sons, His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister's Office, and His Royal Highness Prince 'Abdul Malik. The exhibition took place at the Plenary Hall's lobby of the International Convention Centre.
With the theme 'Empowering the 1 Borneo Halal Market', this year's BIHAS gathered over 50 companies, entrepreneurs and halal product producers from Brunei Darussalam, Sabah, Sarawak and Kalimantan. The exhibition also promoted a number of products including food, drinks, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, fashion, textile, biotechnology and herbs.
BIHAS is a continuous programme to empower the potential of Borneo's halal product in the global arena, apart from acting as a platform to unite halal product entrepreneurs and producers in Borneo. BIHAS is also hoped to promote halal products in the region and the world. BIHAS was held for the very first time in 2018 in conjunction with the 11th KAIB at Institut Agama Islam Negeri Pontianak, Indonesia.
Before leaving, His Majesty signed a commemorative parchment and took a group photo with KAIB and BIHAS 2019 steering committee members.

Members of the public are welcomed to attend the conference and take a closer look at the 2-day BIHAS which is open to from 8 in the morning to 4:30 in the afternoon.
