ABSTRACT

With the largest production base in the world and agroclimatic conditions suited to the production of all major floriculture products almost throughout the year in some parts of the region, Asia truly has the potential to become a major player in the global floriculture business. China and India have huge domestic markets and most of the countries in the region have initiated exports to markets all over the world, especially to Japan, which, after Europe and the United States of America, is a major importer of floriculture products. This publication contains the report of the expert consultation on floriculture development in Asia convened in Kunming, China from 7 to 9 January 2010 to strengthen cooperation among countries of the region through information sharing and networking. The document contains summaries of the country reports as well as recommendations to position countries in the region as reliable suppliers of consistent quality floriculture produce.
