  • The Opening Speech Of The Honourable Tun Hj. Abd. Razak Bin Datuk Hussein ONN, Prime Minister of Malaysia, at the Official Launch ceremony, RISDA on February 8, 1973.

    With the establishment of RISDA, creates an organization dedicated to guiding the smallholder sector towards progress and economic and social development, RISDA will establish natural rubber industry of the country grew strong and stable.

    The Government looked at essential to create a policy and a new strategy for the promotion of smallholder sector and based on this, RISDA was established.

    As advised, RISDA is responsible for all aspects of the development of the smallholder sector. These include modernizing the smallholders to make full use of the results of research and development of the technique in rubber cultivation and processes it and so working with MARDEC hold an efficient marketing system for smallholders. But very importantly is fostering new attitudes and modern concept for the smallholder sector in accordance with the situation today.

    With this it is clear that the reform elements necessarily form the basis of the concept of CIRCULAR so that all smallholders we use modern practices for increasing the quality of rubber production and higher yield.

    I have also directed the RISDA to hold an "Integrated Approach" to problems faced by smallholders. At any other time the smallholder problems handled by several organisations, namely, the Board of the rubber industry (Replanting), rubber Research Center (RRI) and MARDEC. All of this will now run. This may be carried out with the simultaneous implementation of research carried out GROWERS ' CONFERENCE 1991 as well as the marketing system for the benefit of all MARDEC small farmers in the country. By means of the "Integrated Approach" that it is HOPED will ensure that smallholder sector renewed in all aspects to enhance the economic status of smallholders and giving a more perfect life.

    The question of improving the economic situation of smallholders in touch closely with the implementation of the new economic policy. Then it is HOPED will be cooperating with all government agencies responsible for yesterday's full. No doubt HOPED that will play an important role in the implementation of the new economic policy, especially in terms of restructuring society.

    In the end I expect that with the launch of hoped efforts we can fully devoted to the problems faced by smallholders and improve their position. Let us pray that my wishes and aspirations through the efforts of the noble RISDA completely.
