The 18th Ordinary General Assembly Meeting of the World Halal Council (WHC), which is the accreditation umbrella institution of the worldwide Halal Certification Institutions, will be held in Manila, Philippines between 14-16 November.

WHC holds its congresses in different countries every year. Among the countries where the meeting was held in the last 10 years, we can count Indonesia, South Africa, Philippines, and Turkiye. During this time, Turkiye hosted three times in a row. Turkiye wanted to host the congress again this year. However, rightly considering the problems of our member in Manila regarding his state, it was a more appropriate decision to hold this year’s congress in the Philippines.

We wish from our Almighty Allah that the program and the decisions to be made will be khayr and beneficial for the whole ummah.
