As a developing nation, Vietnam's goal of attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is focused on various sectors, including high technology, innovation, research and development, green economy, digital economy, circular economy, and clean energy. This trend, along with practical challenges that have arisen over the 35 years of FDI attraction in Vietnam, has been incorporated into numerous policies and national strategies related to green growth and climate change adaptation. This article analyzes the concept, necessity, and content of attracting green FDI, as well as the current situation of attracting both FDI and green FDI in Vietnam. It does so from two perspectives: (i) FDI projects in environmental products and services, and (ii) FDI projects utilizing clean energy or having low energy consumption. Based on this analysis, the authors propose several solutions to enhance the effectiveness of attracting green FDI in Vietnam.</strong></p> 2023-09-12T13:16:40+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Infrastructural Financing and Economic growth in Nigeria 2023-09-14T09:34:14+00:00 MBELU, OBIAGELINGOZI IFIONU E.P. <p><strong>The study x-rayed the short and long-term impact of government infrastructural financing on Nigeria's economic growth. The study adopted time series data from central bank of Nigeria statistical bulletin from 1981 -2021. The variables of the study were Administration services (ADS), Economic Services (ECS), and Social&amp; Community Services (S&amp;CS), and Economic growth proxies as the gross domestic product(GDP). Ordinary least square(OLS) test, unit root test, co-integration test, error correction model, and granger causality test were all part of the study's methodology. All the variables used were stationary at 1(1) using ADF test which aided the co-integration test. The OLS test result and test (ECM) yielded almost the same result. The results of show evidence of interrelationship among the variables with gross domestic product in Nigeria but with the exception of S&amp;CS. Furthermore, the speed at which gross domestic product disequilibrium is being corrected is 36.22%, while the granger causality test result&nbsp; fail&nbsp; to promote/ influence each other in output growth but surprisingly Administration services flow to Social Community services directly , acknowledging that increase in administration Services promote the activities of&nbsp; social&nbsp; and Community services. Hence recommended that Nigerian government should inject more funds in infrastructural projects especially in Economic services and Administration services since they are capable of propelling the economy carefully monitor all the projects especially the Social and Community Services projects to ensure that the services centre optimised the resources allocated to them efficiently. Ensure consistency in budget allocation, management and implementation.</strong></p> 2023-09-14T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## SURVEY RESULTS OF THE FACTORS AFFECTTING ORGANIC FOOD PURCHASE INTENTION OF CONSUMERS 2023-09-28T06:00:29+00:00 Thanh Tung Hoang Tri Tai Truong Thi Huong Nguyen <p><strong>The research examines factors that influence the organic food purchase intention of Vietnamese consumers.

Given the increasing importance of digitization in financial transactions, understanding these factors can provide valuable insights for policymakers, taxpayers, and accounting professionals alike. The aim is to evaluate the role of four primary variables: ease of use, security concerns, government support, and taxpayer behavior in the successful implementation of electronic tax payment systems. The study employed a survey design and was conducted among 400 adults working in Rivers State using a snowballing sampling technique. Questionnaires were administered to gain insights into the perspectives of those who pay personal income taxes. Multiple regression analysis indicated that all four variables have a significant positive relationship with the adoption of electronic payment systems for tax. The adjusted R² value of 0.70 suggests that the model explains 70% of the variance in system adoption. From an accounting standpoint, the results imply that electronic tax payment systems can bring about substantial improvements in financial record-keeping, compliance, and cost efficiency. Particularly, the study findings corroborate several existing theories in financial behavior and technology acceptance. Based on these findings, the study recommends further investment in enhancing the system’s user interface and security features. Moreover, educational campaigns by the government and training for accounting professionals are essential for maximizing the system's utility.</strong></p> 2023-09-28T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
