YBHG. DATO’ WAN MOHAMAD ZUKI B MOHAMAD
DIRECTOR-GENERAL OF RISDA
The existence of the RISDA website demonstrates the commitment on the part of the Management in providing the latest information regarding the development and management of the smallholders’ sector.
The Rubber Industry Smallholders’ Development Authority (RISDA), established on 1 January as a government statutory body, is responsible for the management of the rubber industry fund, implementation of re-planting programmes and thus, the modernization of the smallholders’ sector. The role of the smallholders in the Malaysian rubber industry is important as this sector contributes 78% of the national rubber output.
In its efforts to elevate the socio-economic status of the smallholders, RISDA has and will continue to focus on various programmes and activities to determine that such programmes are of real benefit to the smallholders as well as to ensure that the Malaysian rubber industry remains stable and competitive.
It is my hope that this website will enable visitors to interact and obtain general information about RISDA as well as specific information about the programmes and activities planned for the development of the smallholders’ sector.
Thank you. Happy interacting.
