  • Behavioral Parent Training (BPT) interventions have been found effective in reducing a wide range of child behavior problems. However, most relevant research has been conducted in Western countries that may differ along significant cultural dimensions from Asian countries. Thus, the relevance and utility of Western-based BPT for Asian’s population like Vietnam is unclear. The present study assessed parents’ beliefs about the acceptability, perceived feasibility, and anticipated effectiveness of Western BPT techniques in Vietnam. A sample of 303 Vietnamese parents with a child enrolled in the fourth or fifth grade participated in the study. Vietnamese parents reported using significantly more BPT-congruent than BPT-noncongruent responses toward less serious child misbehaviors (e.g., ...

  • 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

  • This paper examines the impact of the sectoral composition of growth on poverty reduction in Vietnam during the period 1998-2008. It is found that an increase in the proportion of the agricultural sector will lead to a higher poverty rate and that economic growth has a positive impact on poverty reduction in Vietnam. These results support our hypothesis that the sectoral structure of economic growth affects poverty independently from overall economic growth. Moreover, these results also demonstrate that the process of restructuring the economy towards reducing the proportion of agriculture and increasing the share of industry will have a positive impact on poverty reduction in the future.

  • This paper provides a new evidence on the performance of twenty Vietnamese commercial banks over the period 2007-2010. The study used Data Envelopment Analysis to analyze the efficiency and productivity change of Vietnamese commercial banks. The results show that the efficiency of Vietnam commercial banks increased from 0.7 in 2007 to 0.818 in 2010. However, the results suggest that Vietnamese banks suffer slight inefficiencies during the global financial crisis in 2008. In addition, the results show the average annual growth of the Malmquist index 8.8 percent over the study period despite having dropped by 24.9 percent in 2009. These findings can help bank managers and government to understand banks’ efficiency performance and the underlying reasons of inefficiency.

  • Nowadays, Vietnamese women are participating actively in parts of the economy that were previously deemed male domain. Women are involved in business activities at all levels in Vietnam, making significant contributions to the economic development of the country. By December 2011, there were 81,226 small and medium enterprises headed by women, accounting for 25% of the total number of enterprises in the country (GSO, 2013). In Vietnam, despite recent economic development, socio-cultural and legal barriers are still very difficult for women since the general perception in society is that a woman’s main duty is to be a good housewife and mother and they are also often perceived as weak, passive and irrational (VWEC, 2007). Even though the studies related to women entrepreneurship ...

  • With globalization, the university-work transition has become increasingly challenging for graduates and employers. In the new context, the mission of university has shifted, and knowledge is no longer considered as singular [1]. The traditional role of universities in producing knowledge has changed to give more focus on the demands of society. The “codified knowledge” acquired from didactic teaching in universities can be at odds with the often “informal and tacit” knowledge required in the workplace. The development of information technology makes the nature of work changing very fast; graduates need to achieve attributes that help them not only do the work corresponding with their disciplines, but be able to learn new skills and new knowledge. This paper presents the prelimina...

  • Along with a variety of actions to protect the environment, environmentally preferable purchasing (EPP), often referred to as “green purchasing”, has been an emerging trend over recent decades all over the world. This trend is considered as a strategic alternative for all stakeholders in society to promote the sustainable development of the global production chain with the active involvement of consumers. Research in many countries reveals the fact that although consumers today are more frequently encouraged to behave in afriendly manner towards the environment through making home improvements, saving energy, orpurchasing environmentally friendly products, many consumers have not been sufficientlyaware of the significance of those behaviors, especially green purchasing.
