The Penang International Halal Expo and Conference 2019 (PIHEC) promises to be an event not to be missed for international and domestic halal players from across the regions of South-east Asia, West Asia and Europe seeking to expand business horizons and showcase some of the best halal products and services, discover emerging trends, and network with potential clients in the industry.


Theatre

Norm & Ahmed is a midnight conversation between a Pakistani student, Ahmed (Phraveen Arikiah), and a cliché-familiar Australian workman Norm (Kingsley Judd). What emerges from the conversation not only confronts us with how little Norm and his fellow Australians understand about Asians, but with how close Australia is to its near north. Both Norm and Ahmed, from playwright Alex Buzo’s perceptive, are aliens in the same country.
