19 6 24

AROUND one in three business owners in Vietnam is a woman according to a new study, one of the highest rates in the world.

The Mastercard Index of Women Entrepreneurs (MIWE) 2018 compared the rates of female ownership of companies across a range of global economies, as well as assessing economies for how conducive they are to women’s entrepreneurship.

It found that 31.3 percent of businesses in Vietnam were found to be owned by women, only slightly less than in New Zealand (33 percent) and Australia (32.1 percent). By comparison, 25 percent of businesses in the United Kingdom were female-owned.
