During the meeting, Amin raised some important points. First, he expressed his appreciation for the completion of three important agreements between Indonesia and Singapore.

Currently, Indonesia is taking several measures to become a global center of halal production, such as the establishment of halal industrial zones in three strategic areas in Bintan, Serang, and Sidoarjo, he noted.

"I expect Singapore can become an investment partner for the halal industry and encourage the completion of an agreement on halal product guarantees between the Halal Product Assurance Organizing Body and the Singapore Islamic Ulema Council (MUIS)," he said.
