Women play a very important role in the economic development of Vietnam. They are involved in business activities at all levels, making
important contributions to economic growth. Nowadays, Vietnamese women are increasingly active in parts of the economy that were previously considered male domain. Women entrepreneurs also create jobs. By December 2005, it was estimated that 24% of the 113,352 incorporated enterprises were owned by women. On top of that, an estimated 27% of 3 million household businesses are owned by women.

The research underlying this report aimed to assess the development patterns of women- and men-owned enterprises in Vietnam. It  identified the constraints and opportunities faced by male and female entrepreneurs as well as their needs with emphasis on the demands for business development services and representation.
