ABSTRACTED FROM THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: This paper focuses on the role of the rice sector in Cambodian agriculture strategy. The paper first reviews the performance of the rice sector in Cambodian agriculture and rice-related government policies and interventions, and it then identifies potential and constraints for future development of the rice sector. Against the background of a broad agricultural strategy, the paper further explores the options and possible development path for rice in the future by comparing the current situation in Cambodia with its two neighbors, Thailand and Vietnam, in their early development stage. Although both Thailand and Vietnam are rice growing and exporting countries, they have quite different rice development strategies. The paper concludes with a set of further research topics in which we emphasize Cambodia’s comparative advantage, and propose a comparison study of different development paths in rice development and agricultural diversification. Such comparisons may provide more options to inform Cambodia’s agricultural development strategy in the future.
