World Agricultural Center opens in Harbin, China


The World Agricultural Center (WAC), a new global hub for agricultural research, has opened its doors in Harbin, the capital city of China's northeastern province Heilongjiang.


The WAC's opening ceremony saw several prominent industry figures deliver keynote speeches stressing the important role it will have in driving forward the development of the agricultural sector in China and beyond.


The WAC builds on the legacy of the International Agricultural Technology Innovation Center (IATIC) and was established as a part of Heilongjiang's effort to build itself into a thriving international hub for agricultural innovation. It is also said to be the world's tallest building dedicated to agricultural research.


Additionally, the WAC is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for a host of frontier agriculture research projects.
