The Center began its work in Southeast Asia with the Thailand Outreach Program in 1982.

The Center’s regional office, established in 1992 as the Asian Regional Center and renamed in 2009 as the World Vegetable Center East and Southeast Asia, is located on the campus of Kasetsart University in Bangkok. Staff collaborate with university administration and researchers with the support of the Royal Thai Government. The office is the focal point for regional research and training and for the Center’s work with the People’s Republic of China.

The regional office addresses vegetable research and development in the region to improve nutrition and reduce poverty through hands-on training. The Center’s annual International Vegetable Training Course has been held for more than three decades; thousands of scientists across Asia have participated, enhancing their technical, scientific and managerial skills in vegetable production and marketing to contribute to the sustainable development of their countries.

The Center’s Research and Training Station is located on Kasetsart University’s Kamphaeng Saen Campus in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.
