  • Impact of Firm's Environmental performance on Its Financial Performance Empirical Evidence from Vietnam's Small and Medium Manufacturing Firms.pdf.jpg
  • Article


  • Authors: Nham, Phong Tuan; Tran, Hue Chi; Nguyen, Thu Ha (2012)

  • This research has investigated the relationship between ROA, accounting based measure of financial performance in the short term and inspected times, an environmental variable measured by the number of times that a firm was inspected by Environmental Agency. The firm incurred in high inspected times has low environmental compliance. In that sense, this is a negative indicator for environmental performance. Based on different level of environmental performance, this study constructs the "SME_high polluting" (SME_H) and "SME_low polluting" (SME_L) portfolio. The analytical results indicate that better pollution control neither improves nor undermines financial success. SME_H group shows...

  • Technical Efficiency of Vietnamese Manufacturing Firms and Its Determinants A Preliminary Analysis.pdf.jpg
  • Article


  • Authors: Vu, Thi Bich Lien (2012)

  • This paper estimates stochastic production frontiers separately for foreign-invested, state-owned and private firms of the Vietnamese manufacturing industries during the period 2000-2009. The result shows that private firms' technical efficiency is, on average, the highest of the three groups of firms in most years. If we look at determinants of their technical efficiency, private firms are found to benefit from production activities of foreign-invested firms until 2008, while state-owned firms are not. This implies that those private manufacturing firms in Vietnam have been able to imitate/absorb new production technologies from foreign firms. In 2009, however, the private firms also...
