HOA NGUYEN QUYNH, TOAN PHAM NGOC

Abstract


Using panel data from the GSO’s enterprise surveys for the period 2011 - 2015 and fixed effects regressions, this study examines the impact of AEC on demand for female labors in enterprises in Vietnam. It shows that there are statistically significant effects of AEC through the increase of intra industry trade on the female labour’s demand in all sectors and in the manufacture sector. In case of all enterprise, a sector oriented to intra-industry trade (IIT value increases gradually to 1) also makes the proportion of female workers increase in both short-term and long-term, but the impact in the longer term is stronger. The correlation coefficient between IIT and share of female labour in the short-term and long-term ones are 0.037 and 0.4 respectively. The short-run and long-run correlation coefficients are 0.4 and 0.44 in the manufacture sector.

Keywords: Asean Economic Community (AEC), female labour demand, intra – industry trade (IIT).
