 ADAL Boss Promises Strong Partnership With Famers

 By Robert Dixon
 
 MONROVIA, February 9 (LINA) – The President of the Agro-Import Dealers Association of Liberia (ADAL), Madam Rebecca S.Kalayi, has assured
 famers throughout the country of strong partnership in providing them  agriculture inputs.
 
 She expressed optimism that her organization’s partnership with famers  in the country will go a long way in helping famers to enhance their
 faming activities.
 
 Madam Kalayi gave the assurance Thursday at a program marking the launch of the Agro-Import Dealers Association of Liberia with support
 from the United States Agency for International Development (USIAD),  Liberia Agriculture Development Activities (LADA) and other
 organizations held at the Paynesville City Hall outside Monrovia.
 
 Giving  an overview of the  organization, she told the gathering that  ADAL started in June 2016, at the DEN-L training center in Gbarnga,
 Bong, where they had a two-week intensive training on the safe use of Agro-Import and Agro-Business  organized and facilitated by LADA and
 another agricultural organizations in collaboration  with the Ministry  of Agriculture.
 
 According to her, from that training their perception on the Agro-Input Business took a different and greater dimension, adding
 that “a good job well done was made successful by the incredible  support from USIAD and the American people.”
 
 “ADAL with a membership o 48 can now boast of being a legally  registered and accredited entity with head office on the Old Road in
 Sinkor,”  she said.
 
 Also speaking, the Deputy Minister for Small Business Administration  at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Andrew G. Paygar, lauded the
 ADAL leadership for their farsightedness in organizing  such an entity. He said agriculture is very critical to the development agenda
 of any country, and pledged the Commence Ministry’s preparedness in  working with them to enable them achieve their goal.
 
 For his part, the Chief of –Party of the Liberia Agriculture Development Activities (LADA), Daniel Gies, lauded Madam Kalayi and
 the ADAL leadership  for organizing such an  entity that works with famers in the country  to import agricultural  products, and  pledged  LADA’S  full support to the organization.
 
 Agriculture Minister Dr. Moses M. Zinnah, who served as keynote speaker and chief launcher of the program, commended ADAL for the
 initiative and pledged the Agriculture Ministry’s continued support to  the program which is geared towards supporting famers in the country
 adding, "the work of the Agriculture Ministry is not to make farms but  to develop and implement a unified government policy on the  development of the agricultural sector of the country."
 
 Dr. Zinnah encouraged the Agro-Import Dealers Association of Liberia  to make the input relatively available and provide education and training to famers in the country.
 
 He expressed appreciation to the Agro-Import Dealers Association of Liberia and pledged his personnel support to the  organization.
