  • The Potential of Vietnam's Agricultural Exports to the Indian Market:
           Analysis of Supply and Demand Factors

    • Authors: Nguyen Xuan Trung; Nguyen Thi Hien
      Abstract: To assess the potential of Vietnam's agricultural exports to the Indian market through the analysis of trade indicators from analyzing Vietnam’s supply factor and India’s demand factor, the study using Revealed Comparative Advantage (RCA), Export Propensity Index (EPI), Import Penetration Index (IPI) and balance of trade (BOT) on agricultural products in subheadings (6-digit HS code) specified from chapter 1 to chapter 24. The study indicates that Vietnam's agricultural products with great potential for export to the Indian market are (1) Pepper of the genus Piper, neither crushed nor ground (HS090411); (2) Juniper berries and seeds of anise, badian, caraway, or fennel, neither crushed nor ground (HS090961); (3) Plants, parts of plants, incl. seeds, and fruits, used primarily in perfumery, in pharmacy or for insecticidal, fungicidal or similar purposes, fresh or dried, whether or not cut, crushed or powdered (excluding ginseng roots, coca leaf and poppy straw) (HS121190); (4) Non-alcoholic beverages (excluding water, fruit or vegetable juices and milk) (HS220290); (5) Preparations of a kind used in animal feeding (excluding dog or cat food put up for retail sale) (HS230990). As a result, Vietnamese businesses interested in exporting to India could explore these items.

  • The Future of Creating Jobs for Vietnamese Workers after Covid-19 Pandemic

    • Authors: Dao Ngoc Ha; Nguyen Thi Thu Huong, Nguyen Tuan Anh
      Abstract: The picture of the global economy has experienced a tumultuous year with "dark colours" as the dominant colour due to the severe impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. In December 2020, a vaccine against the acute respiratory infection Covid-19 was released to help control the pandemic and restore economic activity. The world economy has shown significant signs of recovery. Hence, the International Labour Organization (ILO) said that the labour market has begun to recover after unprecedented disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. However, the negative impact of the pandemic is still ongoing. The organization's Covid-19 Impact Report provides the latest figures showing that global working hours in 2020 have decreased by 8.8% compared to Q4 2019. This decline includes the number of working hours reduced for those still employed and those who lost their jobs. Notably, about 71% of people who lost their jobs (equivalent to 81 million people) decided to leave the labour market instead of looking for another job and becoming unemployed (GSO, 2021). This article focuses on analyzing the current situation of job creation for Vietnamese workers after Covid-19, pointing out the achieved results, limitations, causes and some recommendations to promote job creation for Vietnamese workers in the post-Covid-19 context.

  • Analysis of Sustainable Development Progress in the State of Sabah,

    • Authors: Mohd Ikbal Mohd Huda; Abdul Rahim Ridzuan, Mohd Ikhram Mohd Ridzuan, Marfunizah Madan
      Abstract: Development is a process of creating a prosperous society in terms of its economic, social, political and environmental quality. The government plays a crucial role in realising sustainable development by transforming the state and district economies and balancing socioeconomic income. Issues on Sabah’s development have long been debated. The extent of the interest among relevant parties regarding Sabah’s development and how the government ‘tolerates’ ensuring that Sabah is developing at the same pace as other states must be examined crucially. This research aims to investigate the condition of Sabah based on three main pillars of sustainable development: economics, social and environment. The studies only adapted descriptive analysis geared by a questionnaire distributed only to the local Sabahan. Overall, we received 30 respondents, and the outcomes are mixed. Overall, the majority of Sabahan is satisfied with the growth achieved by Sabah; however, they feel pressured by the cost of living and agree that there are still huge poverty issues in this state. Meanwhile, in environmental quality, the local Sabahan are satisfied with the government's approach to maintaining the environment despite huge development in major cities such as Kota Kinabalu. These studies could give meaningful insight to the policymakers in ensuring the development of Sabah is according to the United Nation’s sustainable development policy.

  • A Review of Social Media Marketing Activities in Promoting E-WOM and
           Enhancing Revisit Intention via Brand Image

    • Authors: Shaidathul Jemin; Saizal Pinjaman
      Abstract: Social media marketing has become very important in this era of social media for many scholars from various fields of study to investigate its effectiveness, as well as for marketers aiming to implement an effective marketing plan. However, there are few studies in the services literature, particularly in the Sabah tourism context, that have investigated the effectiveness of Social Media Marketing (SMM) Activities on tourist behaviors, although Sabah is one of the most visited states in Malaysia and among the major contributing industries to the Sabah income. Additionally, brand image plays an important role in tourism as it can affect a company's future revenue, long term fund, price sensitivity, affect decision making, stock prices, competitive advantage, and marketing achievement. Yet, the relationship between SMM activities and brand image remains hazy. Even though SMM activities is identified as an important factor in building a strong tourism brand image. Therefore, to clearly understand the relationship between these variables, this conceptual paper makes a review on the brand image as a mediator on the influence of SMM activities on tourist response particularly e-WOM and intention to revisit tourism provider social media sites. This article adds to the expanding body of knowledge regarding social media marketing and customer behavior in developing countries by emphasizing the importance of every social media marketing activity in the tourism sector.

  • Assessing the Effects of Entrepreneurial Attributes and Business Practices
           on the Continuing Existence of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Using
           Deming Management Model of Total Quality as a Benchmark

    • Authors: Eric Edwin Owusu; Charles Akomea Bonsu, Alfred Owusu, Daniel Ofori, Adwoa Benewaa Brefo-Manuh
      Abstract: Entrepreneurship is certainly not a simple job and does not generally ensure a 100% achievement. Numerous basic features must be set up to empower entrepreneurs to attain a proportion of progress. SMEs therefore deserve attention, especially with regards to the entrepreneurial attributes as well as the business practices of the entrepreneur. The study investigates the effect entrepreneurial features and business practices on the continuing endurance of SMEs.Descriptive research method was employed to obtain a picture of the effect of entrepreneurial features as well as corporate practices on the continuing endurance of SMEs in Ghana. A mixed method strategy was employed to reach conclusions that are accurate, reliable and reproducible. The population of the study focused on entrepreneurs in the small, medium and large enterprises in the Kumasi metropolis. In all, 100 questionnaires distributed, the researchers were able to retrieve 90 representing 90% of the response rate. Interviews, as well as questionnaires, were the main intruments utilised to gather the required information for the study.Findings revealed that entrepreneurs require to have some entrepreneurial qualities for continuing endurance and that specific attributes make some entrepreneurs more fit to maintaining a fruitful business than other, the principle on which this research work concludes. It was realised that characteristics, values and assumptions of entrepreneurs in SMEs may impact their selection of management practices and consequently the presentation of their firms. The crucial determinant for the adoption of Deming Management Model of Total Quality in SMEs is to intensify awareness and motivate all workers on satisfying clients. It was further revealed that Creativity, Self-assurance, and Ability to Adapt negatively influence Teamwork, Risk Management and Planning of business activities among the SMEs surveyed.

  • Determinants of Trade Credit Supply among Developing Countries during the
           Financial Crisis of 2008

    • Authors: Rabia Bashir; Angappan Regupathi
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to identify the firm-specific and country-specific determinants of trade credit supply during the financial crisis of 2008 and compare among upper-middle income and lower-middle income countries. Trade credit supply is measured as average collection period. For panel data analysis, this study uses the Prais - Winsten Panel Corrected Standard Errors (PCSE) method. PCSE removes the of cross-sectional dependence issue in the panel dataset. Findings indicate that firms had to pay their suppliers earlier during the financial crisis 2008 than pre-crisis. Financial crisis significantly influenced the relationship between determinants and trade credit supply but to different levels in different income groups. Average payment periods and private credit to GDP significantly and positively increased the average collection period more in lower-middle income developing countries and less in upper-middle developing income countries. Cash flow volatility and leverage influenced the average collection period significantly and negatively during the crisis. This influence was stronger than pre-crisis and post-crisis periods, and more significant in lower-middle income countries and less in upper-middle income countries. The negative relationship between inflation and trade credit supply is strongly negative in lower-middle income countries. Overall, the results suggest that financial crisis changed the relationship between determinants and trade credit supply and the extant of this change was different in different income group countries.

  • Cloud Manufacturing with Fuzzy Inference System: A Supply Chain Approach
           to Post COVID-19 Economy

    • Authors: Sam Kolahgar; Mohammad Nateghi, Azadeh Babaghaderi
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic shocked the managerial team with unprecedented fluctuations in supply, demand, and transportation of goods and services. The lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic proved the urgent need for agility and flexibility in response to similar future crises. This paper proposes a cloud manufacturing model as a clustered supply chain approach that incorporates fuzzy inference systems to provide a platform for the post-COVID-19-economy. Cloud manufacturing is a way to standardize and increase the system’s reliability, and a fuzzy inference system is suited to deal with highly uncertain circumstances. A fuzzy inference system is integrated into a cloud manufacturing model to incorporate uncertainties related to Time, Quality, Cost, Reliability, and Availability in finding the optimum supply chain of manufacturers and service centers. The model is illustrated via a simulation in the manufacturing context. The proposed approach provides a tool to address the uncertainties and disruptions resulting from wide-scale crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
