Partnering nations for development
As a dedicated corporate partner to governments and communities, RGE's group of companies drives and supports a range of initiatives aimed at improving the lives of people in our operation areas.
In Indonesia, Asian Agri works with the government to improve the standard of living in Indonesia by supporting a transmigration programme. The programme helps relocate impoverished communities from areas of high population density. Our involvement since 1987 have benefitted 29,000 families.
Transmigrated communities were provided with infrastructure, amenities, training and education via corporate-community partnerships, which Asian Agri actively supports. With robust research and development and expert consultation, Asian Agri has assisted with the provision of quality seeds and sharing of up-to-date agronomic practices. These support initiatives have raised the levels of literacy, skills, plantation productivity and quality among the smallholder communities – empowering them to live better and dignified lives.
