The Thailand Agricultural Sector Analysis Program is a cooperative project between Iowa State University, the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (through its Division of Agricultural Economics) and USOM/ Thailand. The project, which has now completed its third year, was initiated July 1, 1973, in response to direct requests by the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives for cooperation and collaboration in the development and application of sector analysis models and methods that have practical utility in guiding future development of Thailand's agriculture at national, regional, and local levels.

The agricultural sector analysis planning activity is centered in the Division of Agricultural Economics (DAE) which is in the Office of the Under Secretary of State, Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC), Royal Thai Government.

The purpose of the project is to provide Thai planners with an assessment of possible policy decisions at the Kingdom, region, or local level. The focal point of the project is the welfare of the 24 million people living in Thailand's rural households.
