Evaluation of entrepreneurship monitoring in An Giang Province, Vietnam

Nguyen Huu Tri


Entrepreneurship monitoring has attracted the attention of researchers, government, international organizations and investors. The role of start-up to the development of a country is increasingly confirmed through many research projects. The term of entrepreneurship monitoring (EM) started with different views depending on the approach. In this paper, EM will be analyzed on the access framework of the Global Entrepreneurship Research Association (GERA). The main objective of this analysis is to evaluate the EM of An Giang province basing on the evaluation vision of experts judgment via the approach framework from GERA.

The research results showed that two factors of finance for start-up and education at high school are two barriers in entrepreneurship monitoring. On the contrary, the strengths are the dynamics of the domestic market, infrastructure and culture-social norms for start-ups. Based the result, this study recommended that An Giang should pay attention to some of the following policy groups as: [1] supporting capital for start- up and developing businesses; [2] increasing education and training on start-up skills in secondary and high school; and making priority policies to start a new business and start-up environment.
