This paper explores the factors affecting firms’ perception on how important barriers to innovation are in the case of Cambodia. In particular, the study aims to bring the characteristics of Cambodian enterprises to the fore, shedding light on two issues: what the characteristics associated with firm’s perceptions of barriers to their economic and business operations are, and whether differences among their geographical location exist in relation to their assessment of how important such obstacles are. By using data from the World Bank Enterprise Survey 2016 in Cambodia, as well as information drawn from the previous wave of the same survey, the econometric analysis considers the complementarity among different types of obstacles highlighted in the empirical literature as being important from drawing policy implications.
