You are cordially invited to attend the workshop organized by Centre for Analysis and Forecasting (under Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences) in cooperation with Institute of Research for Development (IRD/France) on launching the book “The Importance of Household Businesses and the Informal Sector for Inclusive Growth in Vietnam” under the NOPOOR project.
The workshop presents the main findings of the book. This book draws on an original and innovative data collection to provide new evidence on household businesses and the informal sector in Vietnam. This 2014/15 HB&IS survey conducted in late 2014 and early 2015 is the first national survey ever on this sector in Vietnam with full coverage of its different components. The purpose of this book is threefold. First, it aims at filling the knowledge gap as to the role of household businesses and the informal sector in the Vietnamese economy. Second, it provides new insights for policymakers to unlock household business potential by identifying the factors blocking their performance and productivity. Thirdly, it identifies the sources of worker vulnerability in household businesses and the informal sector to inform the design of a suitable policy to tackle this vulnerability.
