Structural changes in the demand for food in Asia
Many Asian countries are expected to undergo transformations in their economies and rapid urbanization over the next 25 years. The changes in tastes and lifestyles engendered by urban living are likely to have significant influences on food demand influences perhaps as strong as the well-documented effects of household in comes and food prices. Changes in marketing systems and occupations, closely linked with increasing gross national product (GNP) per capita, also may influence the demand for food. the authors consider possible causes of structural shifts in diet. They present statistics from Taiwan household expenditure surveys and from data from provincial China. Based on their research, they suggest policy implications for the year 2020.
