IRRI at the World Economic Forum

Dr Robert Zeigler, the Director General of the International Rice Research Institute was at the World Economic Forum in May! 

I took a vacation from my vacation, barely a week in, to watch the discussion on Agricultural Transformation in East Asia as it was being streamed live. Weird that I was watching online because Channel NewsAsia, the media partner of the World Economic Forum, wasn't airing the discussion on the telly. 

I'm sharing the video in this post. It highlights what it would take to feed East Asia in the future.
