Cambodians for Resource Revenue Transparency sponsored a study to obtain the views of small and medium enterprises on the extractive industry in Cambodia. The study focuses on whether the participants believed new resource revenues entering the Cambodian economy from the extractive industry would be harmful or beneficial to their businesses, the overall business environment and general population.

The study was conducted through both quantitative and qualitative methods. A questionnaire was prepared for face-to-face interviews, with 548 SME owners and
representatives in a total of 16 provinces in Cambodia. Provinces with more than 200 SMEs were chosen. Focus group discussions were conducted in 3 areas: Battambong, Kampong Cham and Phnom Penh, and the sample was randomly selected.
