UAE royals attend UK halal export talks

Country/Region: Europe, United Kingdom

Royal guests from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have visited the UK to discuss ways of boosting halal meat exports to the Middle East.

The move to generate interest in the Middle East market comes after the UAE lifted a ban on British meat exports following outbreaks of foot and mouth disease in 2001, which had a devastating impact on the country's agriculture and economy.

The talks were set up by Eblex, England's levy board in UK lamb and beef. The Al Mualla ruling family and UAE trade representatives met the Eblex halal steering committee at Hijaz College Islamic University in Nuneaton to determine whether halal practices in Britain are compliant with UAE standards.

Eblex director, Nick Allen said:

We've realised the halal sector is quite important to us and we're now looking at exports abroad which we haven't done before. For the first time in ten years we're looking to make a sustainable profit. It will make the whole industry thrive and it's really good for the economy.

With one-third of Britain's lamb being exported, exports to the Middle East could replicate New Zealand's halal boom of the late 1980s, when the country's halal industry was fuelled by big contracts with Middle Eastern countries. The Southland Times this week reported that the annual value of the New Zealand halal industry was estimated to be about 800m NZ dollars, including $250m in meat and $400m in dairy products.

    • It is reported that Hindu radicals have planned an event to convert 4,000 Christian and 1,000 Muslim families to Hinduism on Christmas Day. Pray for Christians in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India who are facing increasing pressure and violence since the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party gained political power on 26 May. Pray that God will grant strength to His people so that they will remain faithful. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Mon, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Praise the Lord that around 6,500 homeless Christians in Kandhamal District of Orissa State, India, now have proper homes to live in, with help from Barnabas Aid. Their houses had been damaged or destroyed more than six years ago in two bouts of severe anti-Christian violence by Hindu radicals in 2007-8. Some 60,000 Christians were made homeless. Continue to pray for the speedy completion of more houses currently under construction. Pray also that God will continue to heal the victims of this terrible trauma.

    • Continue to remember Pastor Tandin Wangyal, who is serving a prison sentence of almost four years in the small nation of Bhutan, only because he received funds from outside the country to help support his ministry. Ask God to sustain our brother at this time, so that he will draw comfort from God’s grace. Pray that his faith will not fail. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sat, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Dear Lord Jesus, we pray for freedom for the thousands of Eritrean Christian refugees who have fled from escalating anti-Christian persecution in their home country, and are being detained in prisons in Egypt. You said that You had been sent to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and to set the oppressed free. We especially ask your healing for women and men who have been raped in prison, and for your grace for those who have been kept chained for months, suffering hunger, torture and abuse. Please free these faithful ones, who suffer for Your Name. (Luke 4:18,21) Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Praise God for the continued Christian presence in northern Mali, despite the apparent desire of jihadists to wipe it out. Most of the Christians who had fled the region when Islamist radicals took control in 2012 have now returned to their homes, after French troops ousted the Islamists. Many church buildings were desecrated, looted or severely damaged, but the Christians are determined to resume their ministries. Pray for their protection.
