Mangadap Sinaga and his officers and staffs informed many strategic and useful information as followings. Vision is to be tourism regency. Samosir regency has the most beautiful and largest lake on the world. However, 75% of the land locates in slope area which cannot be cultivated intensively. For this area coffee must be the promising solution. Coffee will be integral part of tourism. Nowadays, coffee growers are 5,100 households. Coffee plants covers 2,900 hectares with production in amount of 2,600 tons of coffee bean per year mostly Arabica coffee. Abundant of uncultivated area -thousands of hectares- are still available for coffee. Samosir regency is an ideal land for Arabica coffee because it locates on 900-1600 meter above sea level. Hence, the Samosir Regency area is very suitable for commercial and specialty coffee. Taste and aroma of Samosir coffee belongs to world’s best coffee. Samosir coffee are sold solely in form of bean. Government has plans such as to increase production and productivity, to increase coffee area, to stimulate coffee industry.  Samosir government invites coffee investors.
