dc.description.abstract<p>This paper represents a preliminary survey of the extent of TNC involve&shy; ment, especially that of transnational leaf buyers, in the production and eiqp&oacute;rt of tobacco leaf in Thailand. Tobacco varieties included in this study are Virginia, Burley and Oriental (Turkish) tobacco, with special emphasis being placed on Virginia tobacco. This does not necessarily mean that native (Thai) tobacco is not an important crop. The native sun-dried leaf, however, lies beyond the present scope of TNC operations.</p> <p>Two major concerns of this study are the extent of control that TNCs and their affiliates exert on the industry and the gains to farmers generated by tobacco cultivation. In the investigation of gains from TNC operations, two distinct levels of gains may be considered.</p>
