This research aims to find out factors affecting the online recruitment by Vietnamese enterprises in the context of global integration. It interviews 220 employees of 30 HCMC and B?nh D??ng-based companies. The results show that the scales of influential factors on online recruitment comprise five components, namely usefulness, ease of use, risk involved in online transaction, risk related to applicants and convenience in payment. All of them have effects on the attitude towards the use of online recruitment, except for ease of use. The research proposes some measures to encourage Vietnamese enterprises to use online recruitment based on the four influential factors.

The paper aims at examining the situation of the Vietnamese stock exchanges and its competitiveness and suggesting a merger of stock exchanges as a feasible measure to restructure the stock market in Vietnam.
Microfinance has become a powerful tool for poverty reduction, women?s empowerment, and inclusive growth for over two decades. Microfinance providers are constantly on the lookout for innovative approaches and distribution channels they could use in order to better serve their clientele. One of the greatest developments that have been made in this respect is the formation of Self Help Groups (SHGs). SHGs are small, informal, homogenous groups who come together for addressing their common problems. The fundamental concept of SHGs is the creation and utilization of a group savings and resource fund to make low cost loans to its members. The groups which predominantly consist of women promote women?s participation in politics through financial and psychological support, thereby also advancing the objective of women?s empowerment. The aim of this paper is to assess the impact of SHGs on women?s empowerment. The study finds that impact of microfinance on women is substantial in building confidence, courage, skill development and empowerment but there is no positive impact in sustainable rural development especially reduction of poverty, creation of employment opportunities and creation of assets in rural areas.
High-quality human resources play a very vital role in the national or regional economic development and how to enhance the human resources quality has been a matter of concern to policy-makers. The Central Vietnam Key Economic Zone (hereunder abbreviated as CVKEZ) has focused on exploiting the human resources to accelerate the economic growth. Accordingly, the paper is to evaluate the current situation in CVKEZ and recommend some measures to improve the human resources quality in this zone in the near future.
There are many models for measurement of service quality in the world and the initial one was developed by Parasuraman et al. in 1985. Although widely employed in many researches, their original model has been modified and developed into various new ones and one of them is SERVPERF model introduced by Cronin and Taylor in 1992. My research applies those two models to measurement of quality of services supplied by Vietnamese commercial banks, and by VCB ?? N?ng in particular. The research finds that factors affecting the quality of consumer loan service by VCB ?? N?ng are, in order of importance, ?assurance and empathy?, ?price awareness?, ?reliability of pledge?, ?convenience and tangibles?, ?responsiveness after disbursement?, and ?reliability of service supply process?.
In this paper, three indexes were used to evaluate competitiveness of Vietnam coffee industry and its recent trend. We showed that Vietnam coffee has comparative advantages compared with other exports from Vietnam and with coffee product in the world as well. The increase in RCA index of Vietnam coffee implies the relative advantages in coffee production of Vietnam gradually rise. The DRC curve being below the exchange rate line reconfirms the increase in these advantages. This fact means Vietnam can save foreign currencies efficiently by investing in production of coffee for exports. However, the UV index shows that quality of Vietnam?s coffee is low in comparison with coffee products from other exporters such as Indonesia in ASEAN or Brazil, Columbia and Costa Rica in the South America. The decreasing quality of Vietnamese coffee shows that there is a trade off between comparative advantages and quality-based competitiveness in coffee production of Vietnam.
