Dr. Samarendu Mohanty, International Potato Center (CIP)’s new Regional Director for Asia, visited the Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) on 2 October 2017. Meeting Dr. Mohanty was BAR Director Dr. Nicomedes Eleazar and other staff.

Dr. Mohanty and Dr. Eleazar took the opportunity to discuss prospective areas for research and development collaboration between CIP and BAR, specifically on exploring the possibility for the realization of a project in relation to CIP’s concept note titled, “Promoting sweetpotato and potato for income, and food and nutrition security in the Philippines.”
