This volume examines the changing nature of policies regarding the foodgrains market in the post-liberalization period in South Asia. The volume explores the impact these policy changes have on food security, prices, production, consumption, and trade of foodgrains.

The outcomes are further analysed for regional economic integration in Asia. The countries under discussion are India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The book brings out the contrast between the policies followed in these countries and outcomes emerging from them, measured in terms of many development and market indicators.
