Over the past several decades Asia`s Maize Economy has expanded significantly, and in recent years Asia`s share of maize production has risen more rapidly. It is poised to grow even further, owing to direct and indirect Demand generated from the region`s burgeoning Animal feed and Industrial sectors. This Study covers seven Asian countries, namely China, India, Indonesia, Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. Together, these Countries generate over 90 per cent of Asia`s maize production, and a quarter of the world`s maize supply. The basic objectives of the study were to : 1. Review the production, Consumption and trade in maize in Asia; 2. highlight the Policy Environment in each country; 3. analyse the incentives available for maize producers; and 4. forecast the Nature of the maize economy in Asia in 2025. In recent years there has been no comprehensive study of maize Policies in Asia. This book has emerged from a broader collaboration between CIMMYT, IFPRI, IFAD and seven Asian NARS (National Agricultural Research Systems) aimed at gaining a better understanding of the maize policy environment in Asia. As national policy making and global trade regimes become increasingly more dynamic and diverse, this book will Foster constructive dialogue, and serve as a guide to policymakers in the Region in their efforts to craft more effective and equitable policies for maize in Asia, and the World in general.
