01 February 2021
Women-owned Enterprises account for 26.5 percent of the total active enterprises, making a significant contribution to the Vietnamese economy. These enterprises are mainly small and micro-sized and are facing many obstacles that impact on the optimization of the development potential of women-owned SMEs. This study is conducted under the program “Promoting Economic Empowerment of Women at Work in Asia” (WeEmpower Asia), a collaboration between UN Women and the European Union to make recommendations which firmly support the further development of these enterprises.
The study is conducted using statistical analysis, desk reviews of secondary source materials, in-depth interviews, and focus group discussions that provide insightful data from diverse perspectives.
