A two-day research review workshop has ended at the Central Agriculture Research Institute or CARI in Suakoko, Bong County, Central Liberia. Organized by the CARI Management, it was attended by several institutions, national and international NGOs, stakeholders and the Minister of Agriculture Dr. Moses Zinnah.
Giving an overview of the program, the Deputy Director General for Research at the CARI, Dr. Dunstan Spencer said, the forum is intended to train scientists and researchers assigned at the institute.
Dr. Spencer said the workshop is also meant to afford researchers and scientists opportunities to begin the process of presenting their research results, including challenges to stakeholders.
He challenged participants of the training to extend their research works beyond lessons from the workshop and to conduct new studies that have the propensity to make Liberia self-reliant.
Earlier, Agriculture Minister Dr. Zinnah commended the Management of CARI for the initiative and pledged government’s continual support to the institute.
Dr. Zinnah also promised to commission CARI into the special presidential Taskforce on Agriculture that was set up by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in 2015.
