KUCHING: Sarawak is set to host an international conference exploring the roles and impact of Chinese Muslims in embracing the future.

Organised by the Malaysia Chinese Muslim Association (Macma), the International Chinese Muslim Conference will take place here on Aug 18-20, with Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg expected to officiate it.

Macma president Prof Datuk Dr Taufiq Yap Yun Hin said the event would provide a platform for scholars, leaders and experts to exchange ideas and best practices to promote development and prosperity.
