520 Food safety concerns have boosted the Asian demand for
quality food in general and products of geographical
indications in particular. This book shows how Asian
countries are empowering regions and enterprises involved
in differentiation strategies, and the effects that this
regulation can have.|bFood safety issues and economic
growth have boosted the demand for quality food in Asian
countries. In this context, the existence of traditional
products with a long history has caused a proliferation of
new geographical indications such as the famous Chinese
longjing tea or Japanese sake. These products have the
potential to promote local development and gain access to
international markets, but this potential can only be
realized through globally harmonized legislation and
intellectual property rights, also advocated by the WTO.
This has stimulated debate over how the quality of these
goods is defined and how this affects their demand. This
book uses a combination of theoretical discussion and
empirical fieldwork to answer these questions, and analyse
the local and global impact of the proliferation of GIs.
