- Impact Area
As potato scientists and representatives of government and industry discuss the latest advances in tuber research and agronomy at the 9th World Potato Congress, to be held in Yanqing County, Beijing, workers in that area will be advancing on the construction of a new research campus for the CIP-China Center for Asia Pacific (CCCAP).
Work on the new CCCAP facilities is moving forward – construction of secondary structures of the research building has been completed and interior finishing has begun in the office area and living quarters, whereas access roads and other infrastructure are underway. The Center’s construction serves as an example of the degree of collaboration between CIP and the Government of China.
