It was a great honor for me to be part of the research project with the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada. Through the course of carrying out our research, my co-researcher and I enhanced our knowledge of innovation policy directed towards MSME development in our own country and others. This will be invaluable to us for designing and implementing innovation policy in Vietnam in the future. I also appreciate the opportunity to present our research in September 2017 in Ho Chi Minh City. We hope that our research will benefit policymakers in Vietnam and other APEC developing economies, and that we will have the opportunity to collaborate again in the future.
