"The report gives some general background about organic agriculture and the reasons to support the development of organic agriculture ... The report relates experiences from the cases of seven countries: Chile, Costa Rica, Denmark, Egypt, Malaysia, Thailand and South Africa, as well as from other parts of the world. It shows that organic agriculture is developing strongly in all the seven countries, despite quite different conditions and very different levels and kinds of government involvement. Most organic production is for export purposes but countries like Egypt, Malaysia and South Africa have developed substantial domestic markets. Malaysia is even a net importer of organic food."--Exec. summary.
