Abstract

This paper examines the CO2 gas emissions and would find the way to save energy use as a result of adopting ride-sharing system named Pathao and avoiding traffic jam in Dhaka city, the capital of Bangladesh. Most of the people like to stay in an urban area because of the availability of extensive facilities and having proper access of travelling. This analysis recognizes the impacts of ride-sharing Pathao on travelling distance, fleet fuel consumption etc. The result indicates that current ride-sharing system reduces CO2 emission and helps to save energy usage through individual use ride-sharing Pathao in Dhaka city of Bangladesh. Advanced vehicle technologies are changing faster, and policy instruments regulating their design should evolve accordingly to remain updated. Bangladesh has recently upgraded the emission test procedure for the advance technology Motorcycle.

Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to examine the factors influencing the work-life balance of female teachers. The study population was composed of female teacher of educational institutions in Barishal division. The respondents were identified through databases from Barishal Education Board, and Ministry of Education, Bangladesh.  A convenience sampling was used to recruit participants. We developed a five-point Likert-based questionnaire (ranging from 1, strongly disagree, to 5, strongly agree). For data collection, the 630 questionnaires distributed, 370 completed questionnaires were returned, yielding a response rate of 58.73%. Statistical analyses were conducted using SPSS 23.0 and AMOS 23.0. The study employing structural equation modelling (SEM) as the primary statistical technique to analyzed the relationship between dependent and independent variable.  Result showed that the regression coefficient for the path from co-worker support (CS) to work-life balance (WLB) is positive (β1 = 0.681) which indicates that CS contributes to WLB of female teachers.  Similarly, the path from work overload (WO) to work-life balance (WLB) is also significant (β2 = 0.425) which indicates that when WO decreases, work life conflict of female teachers also decreases. Likewise, the path from job engagement (JE) to work-life balance (WLB) is positive (β3 = 0.361) which indicates that JE contributes to WLB. This study is more significant especially in the context of Bangladesh because more and more women are entering into the teaching profession as a result pattern of socio-economic status has changed. In Bangladesh, female teachers can examine their WLB issues using the factors of this study. Finally, different professionals may facilitate awareness about WLB issues confronted by women to make a favorable social attitude towards them.

Key words: Female Teachers, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) Approach, Work Life Balance.

Economic Value Added (EVA): A Literature Review

Author (s)

Md. Zahedul Islam, Md. Thasinul Abedin, & Md. Sharif Hossain

Abstract

Traditional accounting based performance measures fail to assess the true economic return of a firm. In this regard Economic Value Added (EVA) reflects true economic profit of a firm.  This paper explores the role, limitations, foundation, computation of economic value added (EVA) from the established literature. In addition, this paper addresses the key adjustments into residual earnings to reach into EVA. Finally a few numerical examples to introduce key adjustments have been provided. However, there are some other adjustments that are not addressed in this paper. Hence, considering all the financial adjustments in computing EVA can make the paper more worthy of knowledge sharing and dissemination. EVA is termed as a better performance measure across the firms.

Key words: Economic Value Added, Economic Profit, Financial Adjustments, Performance Measure, Residual Earnings.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine and analyze the SWOT formulation of the conch shell business industry in Tanjung Balai. Data processing and analysis methods used are factor and discriminant analysis using the Cochran and Kaiser Meyer Olkin Measure of Sampling (KMO) tests. The results of this study are to strengthen the results of the previous year’s research by exploring the potential of marketing strategies and comparisons of each industry. Meanwhile, the qualitative analysis used is the SWOT analysis. The population in this study were industrial craftsmen in Tanjung Balai, amounting to 38 SMI, which were directly sampled using census techniques. The results of this study that almost all respondents said this effort was necessary in the Blue Ocean Strategy formulation. The six Small and Medium Industries have a level of importance that is not the same as in the Blue Ocean strategy formulation. The loading value or correlation value obtained from the results of the orthogonal rotation of the varimax performed on the five competitive factors also result in 2 main components, such as the volume of contents and the contract system for the first component and the ease of raw materials and facilities for the second component.  The situation in Tanjung Balai Small and Medium Industries (SMI) is a situation that describes the red ocean. It can be seen from the value curve of Tanjung Balai SMI which have a tendency to coincide and can be seen from the number of industry players who tend to increase and increase each other’s market share. Besides, each of the Tanjung Balai SMI also has a position as a business that offers excessively without adequate results. It can be seen from the value curve, which has a high factor value, so it shows the business making a substantial investment.

Key words: Blue Ocean Formulation, Small and Medium Industries, SWOT Analysis Model.

Abstract

Foreign policy indicates the policy of a sovereign state in its interaction with other sovereign state. India is the neighbor country of Bangladesh & Bangladesh is surrounded by India from three sides. So Bangladesh cannot avoid India. From after the liberation war of Bangladesh Indo-Bangladesh relation become develop day by day. Bilateral trade is the result of good foreign policy of Bangladesh with India. In this research paper I discuss about the trade policy of Indo-Bangladesh. For data collection I use some methods & materials, I have collected data from Bangladesh Bank, Export-Import statistics & had been searched websites, Google Scholar, Research Gate. I selected my objective of research -economic policy of Bangladesh with India, find the problems of trade policy & giving a solution by foreign policy. In data of Bangladesh export-import we can see that the import of Bangladesh is more than export. The import items are -all types cotton, organic & chemical products, vehicles, cosmetics & plastic items etc. on the other hand export items of Bangladesh are-home textile, Jute & jute goods, frozen foods etc. From this export items Bangladesh earn millions of dollars as a result we can say Bangladesh foreign policy become develop. After some years it would become a great economic zone for others country.  There are some problems Bangladesh foreign policy with India. They are geographical position, political problems, lacking of experts’ people who make policy, as a poor country Bangladesh affected various treaties. These problems cannot be removed in a day we can reduce these problems by standard of the diplomacy, national resources should be used properly, the trends of party system should be avoided, create a peaceful place & friendly place by foreign policy.

Key words: Bilateral, Export, Import, Deficit, Trade balance.

The study found that Treasury Department of the various SOCBs is involved in CRR & SLR management, Currency Management, ALM and investment. Moreover, excess SLR of SOCBs was gradually increased in 2015 and 2016 with some exceptions. In addition, COF was between 6.95% to 11.87% in the period of 2014 to 2016 and WAIR of investment was drastically fall in 2015 and 2016. Consequently SOCBs incurred huge loss in 2015 and 2016. The implication of the study is that SOCBs can use the findings to take necessary actions regarding excess investment in government securities. Moreover, this study is a unique one in Bangladesh perspective, because a number research conducted on the investment in govt. securities or security market related topic but ”Investment in Government Securities by State-owned Commercial Bank” is new and unique.

Choice of Market Entry Mode is Contingent on Environment: Integrating the Resource Dependence and Contingency Theory Perspectives Samia Tariq

Choice of Market Entry Mode is Contingent on Environment: Integrating the Resource Dependence and Contingency Theory Perspectives

Author (s)

Samia Tariq

Abstract

Selection of the appropriate entry mode for internationalization is a crucial decision. Global firms contemplating foreign direct investment may incur huge costs due to wrong selection of entry mode. Environment, as a non-controllable factor, should guide these firms to choose a pertinent entry mode. This conceptual paper provides key propositions of the potential impact of entry mode selection on the success of the firm, building on resource dependency theory and contingency theory. The study proposes that the choice of entry mode selection by internationalizing Chinese firms, targeting developing as well as developed economies, is contingent on the level of environmental uncertainty and risk profile of the host country. The study highlights significant environmental factors as prime determinants of the selection of an entry mode. The proposed framework can serve as a guideline for global firms to choose the host market depending on the nature of environmental factors. Choosing right entry mode will help them to reduce failures arising from the wrong choice of entry mode. Future empirical studies should test the framework to add to the international business literature.

Outward FDI of Mainland Chinese MNEs: Its Drivers and the Way Forward from the Resource Dependence and Political Economy Perspectives Tariq Hameed Alvi

Outward FDI of Mainland Chinese MNEs: Its Drivers and the Way Forward from the Resource Dependence and Political Economy Perspectives

Author (s)

Tariq Hameed Alvi

Abstract

This study contends that Resource Dependence Theory and Political Economy are pertinent perspectives to investigate drivers of Outward FDI from China by integrating them with other frameworks such as OLI-Framework, Collusion-and-Rivalry Framework, and Three-Stage Model of OFDI for Developing Countries. In so doing, it develops four fundamental propositions. First, OFDI from China will grow further in the coming years. Second, China’s increasing emphasis on North-Atlantic is attributed to the intent of Chinese MNEs to move to the higher end of the value chain. Third, the Chinese MNEs will move to more market-driven transactions after Chinese MNEs become prevalent in international markets. Fourth, Chinese MNEs will focus more on services than manufacturing in the years to come. The author hopes that these propositions will encourage empirical research on OFDI from China. The accuracy of these propositions, however, is contingent on the harmonious relationship between China and the host countries.

Key words: Multinational Enterprises (MNEs), Outward Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI), Inward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs), Resource Dependence Theory (RDT), OLI-Framework, Collusion-and-Rivalry framework, and Three-stage model of OFDI.

The impact of exchange rate regime on Balance of payments in Namibia AFOLABI Tunde Ahmed & NANKELA Ndinelago Monika

The impact of exchange rate regime on Balance of payments in Namibia

Author (s)

AFOLABI Tunde Ahmed & NANKELA Ndinelago Monika

Abstract

The central purpose of this paper is to analyze the impact of exchange rate regime on Balance of payments in Namibia and to determine whether this arrangement is beneficial or not for Namibia. For this concern, the paper uses the VECM method of estimation with two equations with yearly data covering the period of 1990 and 2018. The empirical results indicated that there is a negative statistically significance relationship between REER and export also between REER and FDI leading then into the expensiveness of the local production of goods & services in international markets and lose competitiveness hence worsening the BoP. On the other hand, when REER depreciates foreign direct investment flows to Namibia increases. Despite the two results, FDI is the key vital engine for Namibia’s export. This can be noticed in the mining sector which is the main sector whose Namibia’s export is dependent on. The paper suggests that, pegging to the rand is an appropriate exchange rate regime for Namibia. However, Namibia should consider exploring macro-economic policy independence and be involved in the determination of exchange rate within the CMA framework in order to avoid further deterioration of BoP. The paper also further suggested that Namibia should reduce its dependency on import by promoting the base of its manufacturing and other sectors as this will help to protect itself from changes in foreign price developments particularly from South Africa. The study will help the Namibian policies makers to pay a closer attention to exchange rate regime policies and the researchers in their academic works.

Key words: Exchange Rate regime, Export, FDI, GDP and VECM.

Abstract

The objective of the study was to characterize natural production environment of Ogaden cattle breed. Questionnaire used for the study was designed using the general information developed by FAO (2012). 3 districts and 6 kebeles were purposely and 126 cattle keepers were randomly selected for data collection. The studied variables were farming, cattle breeding practice, purpose of keeping, selection criteria, feeding, health care and veterinary service, income and non-income function, and cattle production constraints. SAS version 9.2, 2008 software was used for data analysis. 30.16% were pastoral while 69.84% were agro-pastoral. Significant difference seen between districts in crop land holding, but no significant difference between districts in forage land holding. Cattle keepers prefer to keep local Ogaden cattle breed and were practicing pure breeding. Majority of them do not produce adequate pasture.  They treat diseased animals by traditional method (57.94%). Male cattle were kept for socio-cultural purpose whilst female cattle were kept for milk production. None of the agro-pastoral respondents have recalled that they use draught power and manure of cattle. Cow milk in the study area has taken the first line consumed by the livestock owners and generating daily income for their family need among other livestock products making cattle the most important livestock species. Prolonged feed shortage was the first cattle production constraint.  The cattle keeping society in the studied area appeared to have distinct culture and tradition of keeping and utilization cattle.

Key words: characterization, natural, Ogaden cattle breed, production environment, traditional disease treatment methods.

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of Snail supplemented diet on production performances of Japanese quail. A total of 120, day old quails were assigned into four groups T0, T1, T2 and T3, each group contained 10 birds with 3 replication. Group T0 was considered as control formulated diet without snail. Groups T1, T2 and T3 fed also formulated diet supplemented with 1%, 2% and 3% snail respectively. Live body weight, body weight gain, plasma calcium and phosphorus level were determined at the age of 15, 30, 45 and 60 days of quail. Number of egg, egg weight, yolk and albumin index, Egg shape index, parameters were started from the day of 45 to end of the experiment. Although of the T1 on day 30, 45 & 60 live body weights were not significantly (p>0.05) increased, the birds of T2 and T3 were  significantly increased from the control birds without snail. Number of egg, egg weight, yolk and albumin index, Egg shape index were almost similar among different treatment groups. Plasma Calcium and phosphorus level were higher among the treatment groups compared to the control and differed significantly (p<0.01). The present study revealed that the supplementation of snail in the quail feed ration were effective improve the performance in quail.

Key words: Snail, Japanese quail, Feed, Egg, Growth performance, Plasma Calcium and Phosphorus.

Muhammad Faridul Alam

Abstract

Bangladesh, after the emergence as an independent state in 16 December, 1971, has not yet been able to glorify itself as a strong democratic nation thought having a wealthy history of democratic struggle. Although there are difficulties in performing democratic practice, the people of Bangladesh are always inspired by democratic ideals and democratic political system as their cherished desires. The liberal democratic  system which has been performed in the West is a distinct theory here, however the fundamental freedom of the people are not realized due to political tensions and lack of consensus on national interest among the major political parties. Thus though having the possibilities of enriching the democratic values and ensuring the development, the process is being hindered. This article will analyze the gradual evolution of democratic movement, problems of present democratic system as well as the prospects of democracy in Bangladesh.

OBED B.C. NDIKOM & BUHARI SODIQ OLUSEGUN

Abstract

This paper evaluated the 2017 Presidential order and the challenges of the Nigeria Maritime Sector as it hampered the smooth, efficient and effective running of the activities within the maritime sector. These challenges ranges from operational delays, marine theft or robbery, hijacking or kidnapping, piracy, militancy, illegal maritime operations and the likes. The implications are enormous as they have over the years significantly impacted negatively on critical sector of the economy ranging from transportation, production, oil and gas sectors and more importantly, threatened the growth and advancement of the regional maritime trade. This paper adopted several literatures and from their assessment and analysis, it was found that, significant relationship existed between the presidential order and the ease of doing business within the maritime sector. The study also found that there is a significant relationship between the presidential order and infrastructural development of the maritime sub-systems. It was also recommended that going forward, government’s approach to maritime policies and issues should be devoid of any form of ad-hoc, fire brigade or kill-and –go methods that have never helped us in this part of the globe. Hence, stakeholders’ engagement is dimmed necessary for an effective, efficient and sustainable maritime security and safety to prompt maritime operational activities.

Democracy, good governance and development in the nascent democracies: A case study of Nigeria’s fourth republic

Abstract

Since its debut in the Greek city state of Athens in the 5th century, Democracy has grown to become one of the most popular forms of government among nations of the word. Overtime too, a common notion suggestive of a positive correlation between democracy, good governance and development seems to have emerged amongst scholars and politicians such that democracy is now considered as a measure of good governance and a catalyst for development. Nigeria chose the path of democracy at independence in 1960. Since then, Nigeria has had four attempts at democratic governance amidst fits of military coup and interregnum. The aim of this paper is to test the veracity of the seemingly held notion of a positive correlation between democracy, good governance and development against evidence based positions in the nascent democracy of Nigeria’s fourth republic. The study observed some deficits of some vital ingredients in the nature and practice of democracy in Nigeria and the fundamentals being the issues of accountability and transparency needed for growth and development in any nation. The study situates the low level development and lack of a positive correlation between democracy, good governance and development on the problems of accountability and transparency in the practice of democracy in Nigeria. The study submits that these problems are not the result of lack of requisite statutes but of statute enforcement. Appropriate recommendations were provided to tackle these problems in order to facilitate much needed growth and development in Nigeria.

Md. Dulal Mahmud & Sabina Yeasmin

Abstract

ICT has been a contributing factor in social change and thus leading to development in education. It provides greater access to target learners both on campus as well as the distant learners and has become a vehicle for enriched pedagogical experiences. Education system is still to exploit the full potential of ICT for optimizing human learning. In a developing country like Bangladesh, the question is to bridge the big gap between the ‘have’ and the ‘have not’, which has led to the euphoria of introducing ICT in education. ICT and ODL (Open and Distance Learning) have a symbolic relationship. However, its usage is mainly hampered by low speed, inadequate skills and less awareness of how online technology can improve the productivity, creativity and quality of knowledge work. Today ICT has entered the arena of e-governance starting from ICT literacy and social development. But it has still far from classrooms to create a classroom revolution. It has not percolated to the deeper levels of educational functioning due to various reasons. It is yet to become a culture in the educational sector of Bangladesh. This paper brings into lights the importance of ICT in education, highlights the emerging trends in and various impacts of ICT on primary and secondary education in general and tertiary education in particular, analyzes challenges and opportunities, explore potential future developments and suggests adoption of future strategies so that the nation can prepare its upcoming generations to become global citizens, who can communicate across culture, time and space.

Literature Review on Social Cohesion and Economic Growth Fahad Khalid

Literature Review on Social Cohesion and Economic Growth

Author (s)

Fahad Khalid

Abstract

The study provides a deep insight on the relationship between social cohesion and economic growth on the basis of existing literature. The study has categorized the different dimensions of social cohesion on the base of prevailing studies and elaborated their impact on economic growth in an articulated way. We have found after review of literature that, though social cohesion is defined in different dimension and various studies have used diverse indicators to measure the level of social cohesion but there is absence of any comprehensive measure of social cohesion to better understanding the impact of social cohesion on economic growth. So there is need to do more research to analyze the impact of social cohesion on economic growth through a more comprehensive measure which contains all the indicators describe in different definition of social cohesion. The research is helpful for governments to device policy measures to promote social cohesion in the society.

Assessing the Factors Affecting Management Systems in Nigeria and Mitigating the Negative Effects

Author (s)

Egbuwe Titilola I. & Amah Edwinah

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to assess the various factors affecting the management systems in Nigeria and how to mitigate the negative effects. It reconnoiters the origin and development of contemporary management in the country and the challenges today managers face in a multi-cultural and multi-lingua society. Nigeria is assailed by factors of disunity and snaillike development which alter the essentials of management theories. Leveraging Geert Hofstede’s six cultural models and its empirical studies on Nigeria’s cultural conditioning and its practical insinuations. Geert Hofstede’s models provide a framework for understanding the impact of cultural differences of management of different countries, the comprehensive studies evaluate how corporate management is influenced by culture. This paper builds on academic contributions on comparative management, comparing the western management culture of United States of America and United Kingdom systems to that of Nigeria.  It reveals the extent to which culture limits the effectiveness of practical managerial concepts in corporate Nigeria.

Author (s)

Sikander Hussain & Xiongying Niu

Abstract

The current research shed light on the relation between Ethical Leadership and Creativity. Specifically, this study examined the role of Ethical Leadership on creativity through the mediating mechanism of Psychological Capital. The current study is actually fulfilling the research gap by adding the Psychological Capital as a mediating variable between Ethical Leadership and Creativity. This further signifies the importance of employees psychological Capital to boost certain valued outcomes like creativity.
