With the growing recognition of how women-led SMEs contribute to Vietnam's economy, stakeholders across the sectors of policy and investment have been continuing their support throughout the COVID pandemic. As we look back on which solutions worked best and how to improve as we move forward, Investing in Women and AVPN will partner to host an event convening these stakeholders.

This event will launch the policy report supported by Investing in Women and conducted by Monash University in Australia and the Development and Policies Research Center (DEPOCEN) in Vietnam. Coming up on a year into the crisis, the study will take stock of economic relief measures to foster SME resilience to Covid-19 and analyse the extent to which women have been involved as beneficiaries or in decision making; and the extent to which responses have met the needs of women's SMEs. The research is intended to assist policymakers and donor agencies understand the best solutions for assisting women's SMEs through the recovery response to Covid-19.

In addition, this event will showcase the best practices and collaborations of investors and development finance institutions in advancing women's SMEs in Vietnam.

Join us to learn more about practical and specific recommendations to strengthen gender responsiveness for the SME sector, and to hear from the key stakeholders leading this work in Vietnam!
