Wednesday, September 16, 2009

BUTTERWORTH: The Rubber Industry Smallholders Development Authority (Risda) plans to set up an institute to churn out rubber and oil palm entrepreneurs to boost its Key Performance Index (KPI).

Chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik said the institute might be placed under the organisation’s Kolej Risda.

“We recently opened an Entrepreneur Department within Risda to help handle matters pertaining to entrepreneur development.

“We want to ensure those with potential receive necessary aid from us to eventually become independent entrepreneurs,” he said after presenting dividends to participants of Risda’s new cluster replanting plan (RTBB) and commercial replanting (TSK) from Penang and Kedah at Sungai Dua’s Dewan Besar here yesterday. - The Star
