Ms. Sayeh noted that, there is a need to build an internal management system and a cadastral for the LLA so as to make the most impact in the land sector. As the authority grows, we all need to intensify our efforts by acknowledging that we owe our country, said emphasized.

Earlier, the Chairman of the Authority, Atty. J. Adams Manobah welcomed Hon. Sayeh and informed her of the various projects that are currently being implemented by the Authority with support from donors and partners.

The LLA now has a full Board of five Commissioners and an Executive Director who are committed to carry out their functions and duties unabated. The main mandate areas are: Land Administration, Land Use and Management, Policy and Planning and Administration and Customer Services.
