|Consultancy||Cost Benefit Analysis of a Quality Infrastructure System for Agricultural Products|
|Description||CAVAC intends to engage a consultant to carry out a cost/benefit analysis for a quality infrastructure system in Cambodia.
Currently, Cambodia lacks an overall needs-driven approach to the set-up and strategic development of internationally recognized quality infrastructure and conformity assessment services, guided by a national Quality Policy. As a result, available services are incomplete and not synchronised to serve an entire sector, or value chain from inputs and primary production to aggregation and processing to exporting.
