Members of the Asian Development Bank Spouse Association (ADBSA) visited IRRI headquarters, many for the first time, on Thursday, 30 January 2014. The group was led by Weng Miller, ADBSA president, and Asako Nakao, spouse of the ADB President, Takehiko Nakao.

Participants were ADB spouses from Australia, Canada, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Philippines, and United States of America. They were welcomed by the IRRI spouses led by Judy Buresh and Charmian Sackville Hamilton.

A program was prepared for the ADB spouses during their one-day visit at the Institute. The activities included a video presentation about IRRI and an on-site visit to the Genebank and Riceworld Museum.

The guests enjoyed their one-day tour of the Institute.  Comments from the spouses included that they look forward to visiting IRRI again with their families and friends.
