June 02, 2009 Mr. Yim Sok Sophors and Miss Pheng Chandy who are the staff of CEDAC Field Program had a meeting with Dr. Craig A Meisner, Research and Extension Manager of Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and Mr. Sideth Kang, CAVAC’s new Ext & Res Specialist. The meeting was organized in order to discuss about the revise of the proposal on rice market chain study and also discussed about the methodologies of the study.
During the meeting, Mr. Yim Sok Sophors has discussed one by one relating to the comment from the panel members of the proposal evaluation. As a result, it is more clear about what the research team is going to do from July 2009 for the study on rice market chain. Mr. Sideth will help to find the existing document on rice market chain study from MAFF so that this research team will be able to learn from the experiences of previous research projects.
In short, the revise of the proposal was discussed and the official contract will be done immediately after the submission of the revised proposal. The formation of the study team and questionnaires preparation will be started from July 2009.
