Some of the programs in this meeting not only benefit the scientific community, but also provide many benefits to the government and local communities.

Therefore, we hope the results of this scientific activity will produce useful recommendations for the seven districts around Toba Caldera, especially Samosir who has many interesting places to study, "said Rapidin.
