Barriers to Exports from Low to High Income Countries

I wish to add a few things here. There is an organization called OPEC (Oil Producing and Exporting Countries) who is doing the oil exporting. In this region, we have a mechanism for those who grow and produce rubber. We need to work harder with our partners. Cambodia is holding its rotating chairmanship. There is also one other initiative I started since 2005 in the framework and to attract attention of the ACMECS countries on issue of setting up a rice exporting countries (REC), in which Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar are members. This is an issue that is continuing to be discussed.
