This was said by Masduki at Auckland International Airport, New Zealand on Monday.

"The trade value between Indonesia and New Zealand is 50 percent of the trade value related to halal issues," said Masduki as reported by Antara.


He said that Indonesia and New Zealand had established trade relations for halal products in the form of exports of agricultural products to beef. Besides that, said Masduki, many Muslim communities are growing in New Zealand, so they need a guarantee of halal products using certification from the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI).


For this reason, Indonesian vice president Ma'ruf Amin paid a visit to New Zealand from Sunday to Saturday (25/02/2024-02/03/2024) to continue halal diplomacy for the world community. The working visit focused on two New Zealand cities, Wellington and Auckland, to meet a number of important officials for diplomacy. Two of them are New Zealand Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, Christopher Luxon and Winston Peters.


"There has been consistency in Vice President Ma'ruf Amin's visits to various countries so far, previously to several European countries and now to New Zealand. This consistency is the ideal of how Indonesia can become an important part of world halal rights," he said. (Antara)
