THENATIONAL.AE: Dubai plans to develop halal zones to tap into a growing trillion-dollar global market as the emirate seeks to become a capital of the Islamic economy.  Arabian Gulf halal food imports are expected to more than double to US$53.1 billion by 2020, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit. Of that, the UAE alone would import $8.4bn worth of halal food by the end of the decade.
