The newly appointed Director General of the Central Agricultural Research Institute or CARI says there would be serious focus on intensive research activities for an improved agriculture sector.
According to Dr. Walter T. Wiles, the Institute – purposely for research, would ensure prospects for the sector during the tenure of his administration, as a way of improving the Country food security. The new CARI Director was officially inducted into office last weekend in Suakoko District, with a call to improve the status of Liberian farmers through frequent fact finding visitations.
Dr. Wiles took over from acting Interim Team Leader Aaron Garway Marshall, with a commitment to working to the expectation of the Liberian Government and its people. Dr. Wiles also told a team of journalists upon induction that his assignment would enable him adequately provide professional expertise in moving CARI forward.
The new CARI Director – also head of Institutional Development at the University of Liberia, appreciated the Liberian Government for affording Liberian scientists the opportunity to achieve Masters and PHD’s abroad.
Dr. Wiles pledged to collaboratively work with the team in ensuring the progress of CARI. As part of his involvement in rapid development at CARI, according to Dr. Wiles, the renovation of housing facilities at the Institute following years of brutal civil crisis, was headed by him.
