Why is it important?

This is one of the first studies to explore the interaction between Multinational Subsidiaries (MNSs) undertaking CSR and business opportunities and innovation in the context of a developing country – Vietnam.


The paper makes clear that CSR literature varies depending on the different countries or areas where the studies take place, and these studies tend to focus on a specific area that was appropriate within a particular socio-economic and political context. Given that the business context in Vietnam is characterised by opportunities and incentives for innovation from the socio-economic of the context of a South East Asian developing market, the research provides an important first step in the integration and consolidation of CSR practises, opportunities and innovation.
