Abstract

Rice is one of the most important crops in Cambodia and its export becomes a significant source of employment and foreign exchange accumulation. In this study, the potentials and constraints of rice export are explored. Producers’ and export prices significantly influenced the volume of export. Given the export price, when the producers’ price is cheaper, export will increase. Export will also increase if export price increases while the producers’ price remains unchanged. In addition to the prices, factors that also affect the export of rice include the cost of transportation, access to finance, informal payment, access to the international market, quality of paddy, and business trust (trust among traders, trust between the rice trader and miller, and trust among the rice trader, miller and farmer).
