Thank you to all those who played an instrumental part in making the RT9 this year what we aspired it to be – a gathering of institutions, organizations, associations and individuals with a vision to contribute towards a better world, through our commitment towards sustainable palm oil. We achieved a record attendance of over 1000 people from 30 over countries across the globe. We dialogued and debated on heated issues and subject matters. We expressed different and at most times opposing point of views. And other times, uniformity upon reflection.
The RSPO is committed to being an open and accessible organization, and this begins with such platforms as the RT9 which welcomes people from all walks of life to come together to share their views. For these and more, the RSPO thanks our Guest of Honour, Yang Berhormat Tan Sri Bernard Giluk Dompok, Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities; our key note speaker, Jonathon Porritt, Co-Founder Forum for the Future; our Concluding Orator, YBhg Datuk Sam Mannan, Director Sabah Forestry Department, Malaysia; the international line-up of speakers; chairpersons; attending delegates; the organizing committee and all those who in one way or the other allowed for a thriving event.
This RT9 portal will continue to be a dormant site so as to facilitate literature and materials which were presented during this global meeting to be referred to for purposes that further establish the fruition of our aspirations.
