(p.247) 10 Conclusion
The Chinese Heroin Trade

Ko-lin Chin

NYU Press

This concluding chapter discusses the rise of consumption of amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) in Southeast Asia, and examines policy implications of research findings. It argues that China and Burma are crucial in the region as well as in the world in curtailing the production and transportation of heroin and ATS drugs. Although Afghanistan has replaced Burma as the major supplier of opium and heroin in the world, the warlord-controlled regions in northern Burma continue to exert influence in the world drug market. The rapid increase in ATS production and distribution in this region since the mid-1990s deserves serious attention from regional governments as well as Western countries. The chapter ends with a call for more comparative study on drug markets.
