"The government must carefully and closely monitor the high demand commodities, one of which is halal products and services which according to the data of Halal Industry Development Corporation in 2016, is estimated to reach USD 2.3 trillion," said the Minister of PPN / Head of Bappenas and Executive Chairman General of the Association of Indonesian Economics Bachelor (ISEI), Chairman of the Association of Islamic Economic Experts (IAEI), as well as Secretary of the Steering Committee of National Committee for Islamic Finance (KNKS) Bambang Brodjonegoro in Jakarta, Wednesday (25/07/2018).
