Abstract

The government of Myanmar had laid down the policy of giving export licenses to RSCs which has contract farming records for overcoming the problems of un-pure seeds, lower quality agro-chemical, lack of improved technologies and credit and underdeveloped agricultural infrastructure. So, RSCs have endeavored in Myanmar rice supply chain in 2008. However, the activities of RSCs have been decreased due to change in the above policy and poor repayment rate of contract farmers since 2011-2012. It is said that the decline in RSCs is negatively affected supply chain activities. Therefore, it is required to determine how to contribute RSCs in Myanmar rice supply chain. The objective of this study is to investigate the activities of RSCs on the rice supply chain in Myanmar. We make a comparison between traditional supply chain and RSCs supply chain with descriptive analysis. The results of this study indicate that RSCs supply chain is superior to traditional supply chain by supporting better quality agricultural-inputs to farmers, producing high quality milled rice and competing in international market by exporting it.
