Arkansas-East Bolivia Partners of the Americas is a voluntary organization dedicated to promoting economic and social development throughout the Western Hemisphere. On Wednesday, July 21, 2010, four members of this organization, three from Arkansas and one from Bolivia, took a tour of Dale Bumpers National Rice Research Center. Anna McClung was on hand to greet them before Lorie Bernhardt took them for a short tour of the facility. After the tour of Dale Bumpers National Rice Research Center, they visited the University of Arkansas Rice Research and Extension Center.
