Abstract: This paper focuses on analysing relationships between gender, innovation and the growth of manufacturing SMEs in Vietnam. The analysis is based on the conceptual framework outlined by Storey (1994). We used a sample of 353 SMEs derived from secondary dataset from the World Bank. Our results indicate that gender, new product introduction strategy, firm size and firm age are significant factors that influence the growth of SME manufacturing. Several implications for SMEs, the government sector and researchers as well as future research direction are also provided
