In his speech, President Director of PT TIMAH Tbk Mochtar Riza Pahlevi Tabrani said the reclamation cooperation is part of the Company's commitment as well as efforts to support government programs in improving self-sufficiency and food security.
"The types of plants to be planted in this vigorous plant are productive such as mango, rambutan matoa, longan, jamaja jamaica, and coconut hybrida," said Riza.
President Director of PT TIMAH hopes that this activity can build a community view that mining activities can be done sustainably, after which the mining activity can be continued with the management of productive crops in the mining area so that it is optimally beneficial.
"We hope that this event will support PT Timah's reclamation program and in the long run it will help improve the welfare and economy of the village," he said.
In accordance with the targets to be achieved in cooperation activities, PT TIMAH also involves the community in the process of planting and maintenance. Through this effort, it is expected to grow a sense of belonging and responsibility in maintaining the plant.
