In 2019, to support the development of an enabling environment for inclusive businesses in Viet Nam, the Agency for Enterprise Development (AED) under the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) requested the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the Inclusive Business Action Network (iBAN) to conduct the present landscape study. The study includes a market study of current inclusive businesses in Viet Nam (with profiles of 18 real and potential IB models) and an assessment of the enabling environment. It also provides recommendations for promoting inclusive businesses.
This event launched the Landscape Study of Inclusive Business in Viet Nam and discuss its key findings. The speakers presented examples of real and potential inclusive businesses and explore how to promote IB in Viet Nam, drawing on the experience of ASEAN and other countries, and the insights of the Landscape Study.
