Abstract

­

The knowledge on the nutritional status of pregnant women in Bangladesh is not enough. About 60% of South Asian women have underweight children due to a lack of healthy food and nutrition during their childhood. Pregnant women are the main victims of unhealthy eating habits, which are responsible for malnutrition. Therefore, this study was conducted to assess knowledge and attitudes about nutrition among pregnant women in the rural areas of Dhaka, Bangladesh. A brief and descriptive study was conducted in four randomly selected villages in Nawabganj district in Dhaka, Bangladesh with 384 randomly selected pregnant women. Data were collected from respondents using a semi-structured questionnaire by face-to-face interviews, after taking participants’ verbal consent. The SPSS 20 model is used for data entry and analysis. The findings of the study indicate that more than half of the respondent’s level of knowledge about nutrition was excellent or good but only 43.0% respondents had excellent or good attitude towards nutrition. The level of knowledge was strongly associated with the age of respondents, the type of family and the number of pregnancies and the level of attitude was strongly associated with the age of the respondent and the number of pregnancies. Based on the results of the study, it can be recommended that healthy nutrition education should be strengthened to empower rural mothers to understand the importance of nutritious food during pregnancy. Long-term study on a large scale with the similar population can help to generalize the findings.

Abstract

­

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the sources and management strategies of interpersonal conflict arising between college managers and teachers. It attempted to identify frequently observed conflicts and their sources, conflict management strategies, and whether teachers and managers have differences in their views for the sources and management strategies of conflict. To achieve this purpose survey method was employed and both quantitative via (questioner) and qualitative via (interview) in its approach. The study involved 214 survey participants and a key informant selected through simple random and purposively sampling techniques respectively. Mean and independent-samples t-test were employed to analyze the quantitative data using SPSS 23, in which the qualitative data were embedded. Results revealed that interpersonal conflict was frequently existed in teachers’ education colleges, mostly (m=3.3) resulting from lack of resolving conflict as early as possible. As well as majority of teachers were handle conflict by keeping the self away (m=3.14) it. The findings also imply that college managers employ compromising and integrating as strategies of conflict management. However, in most cases the two groups diverge regarding the sources and management strategies of conflict. Hence, it can be concluded that there is a blame game between teachers and deans in the colleges. This study focused only on teachers colleges therefore, it encountered generalizability problem. Since the problem requires a contextual analysis in its nature, future researchers should apply an exploratory sequential design preceded by in-depth interviews and FGDs. The author believes that this research finding is useful to college deans and teachers to handle interpersonal conflict properly and identify to the major resolution strategies.

Managerial Ties and MNCs’ Performance in Ethiopia: The Moderating Effect of Institutional support Ebrahim Muhamed Endris & Zhou Xiaoyan

Managerial Ties and MNCs’ Performance in Ethiopia: The Moderating Effect of Institutional support

Author (s)

Ebrahim Muhamed Endris & Zhou Xiaoyan

Abstract

­

Managerial ties are becoming crucial success drivers for MNCs in developing and emerging economies. The managers of multinational companies establish networking relationships with government officials and other business actors to secure access to resources, information, and infrastructures that enables them to provide a buffer against the high level of business environment uncertainty. In this way, this study develops and tests an interactive perspective that emphasizes the interaction of managerial ties and institutional support (e.g., implementation of policies, industry information, import-export services, and local resources such as land, electricity and human resources) in influencing MNC performance in Ethiopia. The proposed hypothesis was tested using hierarchical regression results, which were then double-checked using a process model, and the results were consistent. Based on a sample of 227 multinational companies in Ethiopia, it is found that both political and business ties have positive and significant influence on firm performance, and political ties have stronger effect on firm performance than business ties. In addition, in both ties, the interaction effect of institutional support on firm performance is negative. As a result, we conclude that both political and business relations promote MNC performance, but that the value of political and business ties is conditional on the strength and weakness of the government’s institutional support.

Abstract

­

If smallholder farmers market their produce individually, they may incur significant losses from their buyers, agricultural inputs suppliers, and general service providers. However, farmers’ cooperatives can solve this problem by bringing institutional change, and they are leading solutions compared to other businesses. However, the existing cooperatives still did not fill members’ satisfaction according to members’ expectation and Ethiopian cooperatives are not exceptional. The prior research identified different evidence for the dissatisfaction of cooperative members. Among the reasons, member perception on agency problems is one of them; even though the researchers identified such issues, the cooperatives did not treated according to their unique nature rather similarly with investor owned firms (IOFs). Therefore the purpose of this study is to reconcile these gaps; hence it explored members’ perception on agency problem and its impact on cooperative members’ satisfaction in Ethiopian agricultural cooperatives. The results confirm that members’ satisfaction on cooperative governance has significant relationship with members’ perception on agency problems in Ethiopia. This study also provides evidence that members’ participation on cooperative governance moderate the relationship between perceived agency problems and cooperative members’ satisfaction on their cooperative governance in Ethiopia. Agency theory was underpin to understand the concepts; this study used the explanatory approach of research and used a cross sectional design for data collection and analysis. For the purpose of this study, the sample cooperative unions and primary cooperatives were chosen purposively however the sample 201 individual members chosen randomly and it consisted of 4 cooperative unions and 67 primary cooperatives found in Ethiopia. Hierarchal multiple regressions used to analyze the quantitative data to confirm or reject the hypothesis.

Abstract

­

This study explores the utilization of autoregressive forecasting models in strategic management. Business forecasting denotes one of the recent developments in the business environment. The approach complements strategic management to foster the optimal performance of businesses. Business strategists use forecasting models to develop foresight on the future performance of their respective firms; however, there is limited literature on the effectiveness of these models. For this reason, this exploratory inquiry delved into generating autoregressive models and further examining their predictive effectiveness. The methods entailed the collection of secondary data (Tesla Motors Inc. revenue data) and subjecting it to univariate regression analysis to generate the linear forecasting equation. The findings revealed that autoregressive models are generated from the current and past data and can be used to forecasting future business performance. However, the accuracy of these equations relies on the quality of data and the stability of the industry. Therefore, the results of this inquiry contribute to the existing literature on forecasting models. Policy planners can use the information to improve the accuracy of their prediction models.

Abstract

­

This study aimed to examine the differences in travel behaviours and attitudes toward factors affecting travel decisions between Generation (Gen) Y and generation Z Thai tourists. Moreover, this study proposes a tourism marketing strategy to promote tourism for both generations. The samples size of this study was 400 Gen Y and generation Z Thai tourists. The online questionnaire was used to collect data through Facebook fan pages. The result yielded that Gen Y and Gen Z Thai tourists shared many similar travel behaviours, such as travel objectives, transportation, the season of traveling, favourite areas, days of travel, frequency, and sources of information. The author recommended that cultural tourism, eco-tourism, and adventure tourism would fit the needs of these cohorts. Influencer marketing should be implemented to encourage sales promotion toward these generations. Moreover, the popular type of social media should be used to fit with the character of each generation.

Empowerment of Women through Entrepreneurship Development in Dhaka City of Bangladesh

Abstract

­

Bangladesh is a developing country with abundant human resources, with women accounting for just over half of the population. They offer an important opportunity for economic and social growth. Women’s presence in some kind of economic activity is a supplement to their family’s income; it does not relieve them of their responsibilities at home. Women’s civil rights are now characterized by economic empowerment, with entrepreneurship serving as the ultimate form of empowerment. The ultimate goal of this research was to identify several specific characteristics of women entrepreneurs, as well as the degree to which women entrepreneurs are empowered, and to investigate the relationship between each of these selected characteristics and their empowerment. The research area was Dhaka city, and data was gathered using an interview schedule from 104 women entrepreneurs who were divided into three groups: boutique and handicrafts, foods and catering, and beauty parlors in Dhaka city. Data was compiled from July 25th to August 24th, 2019. In order to quantify the variables, scales were developed. Lower middle empowerment was held by less than half of the women (49.1%), upper middle empowerment by 47.1 percent, and medium empowerment by 3.8 percent. The relationship between each of the women’s chosen characteristics and their empowerment was determined using Pearson Product Moment correlation. Annual family income, organizational engagement, training experience, awareness of family management, family co-operation, and participation in the household decision-making phase of the women all demonstrated a strong significant relationship with their empowerment among the selected characteristics. Age, education, family size, and cosmopoliteness of the women, on the other hand, had little bearing on their empowerment.

Impact of non-oil Revenue collection/mobilization on Public Financial Management in South Sudan: a case study on National Ministry of Finance and Planning

Abstract

­

The study aims to look at the effect of non-oil revenue collection/mobilization on public financial management, as well as the obstacles that non-oil revenue collection faces in South Sudan. Non-oil revenue faces several challenges, ranging from effective service delivery to non-oil revenue collection. The key goal is to determine the main source of non-oil revenue collection, develop public financial control and management, examine mechanisms for dealing with non-oil revenue collection issues, and ensure effective and consistent management of non-oil resources under South Sudan government policies and objectives. The report aims to eliminate or minimize to a bare minimum the issues associated with non-oil revenue generation, non-oil revenue administration, tax base penetration, and difficulties in recognizing non-oil revenue mobilization. Other goals include proposing and designing a database solution for efficient property ownership and tax collection control, as well as proposing a network solution for linking local governments and land sector agencies. The research was based primarily on secondary data gathered from non-oil sales analyses and publications. Both descriptive and frequency analyses were used to interpret the data. Microsoft Excel was used as a data collection and presentation platform. Tables and graphs were used to display the information. The researchers looked at the difficulties that come with collecting non-oil revenue in this report. Due to the outbreak of pandemic covet-19, political unrest, and inaccessibility of certain non-oil revenue sources in South Sudan, it was discovered that the non-oil revenue pattern has not been stable. It was discovered that the organization does not keep a complete or accurate record of all taxable events or levies in its jurisdiction. There is no mechanism in place for keeping track of invoices and payments. Data on utilities, equipment, levies, and other items were done by hand, making it vulnerable to bribery, violence, and major non-oil revenue loss. The researchers suggest ways to improve non-oil revenue leakage along with property rate administration through the non-oil revenue task force. They introduce a non-oil revenue database method for capturing non-oil revenue, as well as a computerized non-oil revenue system to improve revenue capture and mitigate leakages. According to the report, policymakers should enact policies that support non-oil revenue management to maintain improved government financial efficiency in South Sudan.

Corporate governance can improve the level of market value management to a certain extent. Therefore, how to improve the level of market value management through scientific and reasonable corporate valuation has naturally become the focus of theoretical and practical circles. Compared with western developed countries, the investment efficiency of investors in China’s capital market is low, and the inefficient investment phenomenon is serious, which seriously hinders the healthy development of China’s capital market. This paper uses the research data of A-share listed companies in Shanghai and Shenzhen from 2011 to 2019 as samples, and obtains first-hand information by means of questionnaire survey and anonymous interview. According to the different situations of ownership structure, property right nature and growth ability, this paper studies the guiding effect of corporate valuation on the investment level of Chinese enterprises. The results show that corporate valuation can effectively improve the investment level of Chinese listed companies and inhibit inefficient investment. Scientific equity structure and equity balance can make a good corporate valuation, so as to improve the investment level of Chinese enterprises; compared with non-state-owned enterprises, corporate valuation plays a more significant role in guiding the investment level of Chinese enterprises and restraining the inefficient investment of Chinese enterprises. Therefore, it is necessary to give full play to the guiding effect of corporate valuation on the investment level of Chinese enterprises.  Through the system design, construction of the rule of law, corporate governance, internal control construction with many ways, such as to improve the growth of enterprises, to perfect supervision and effective incentives, through the market effective drive to the real reflection of the enterprise’s valuation, other investors to invest effectively guide the capital market, at the same time improve the company’s investment efficiency and management level, inhibit the effective investment.

Cashless banking is one of the most progressive banking policies nowadays especially in this modern era of digitalization. The quest of this study is to explore the relationship of the profitability of the bank’s industry with the cashless banking of Bangladesh. Return on Equity (ROE) and Return on Asset (ROA) have been taken as the proxy of profitability whereas transactions volume of Mobile Financial Services (MFS), Automated Teller Machine (ATM), Debit Card and Internet Banking Fund Transfer (IBFT) have been used as the proxy of cashless banking industry in Bangladesh. By collecting secondary data of seven years period from the annual report of the Central Bank of Bangladesh, this study applies a multiple regression technique to explain the relationship between bank’s profitability and cashless banking. The result shows that IBFT has a significant positive impact and ATM & Debit card has a significant negative impact on the ROE whereas MFS and IBFT has positive and Debit Card has a negative impact on the ROA of banking industry of Bangladesh. It is revealed from the findings that almost all the factors have positive/negative impact either on ROA or ROE but only IBFT have a positive and significant impact on both ROA and ROE.

Abstract

­

This paper aims to identify the impacts of Gender on Entrepreneurial Aspiration (growth expectation, innovation, internationalization and industry preference) in Africa. We use data from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor survey (GEM) which cover at least 2,000 individuals per year which comprises about 55 countries. After eliminating observations that are inconsistent or have critical missing values, we use a sample of 769 individuals. Generalized structural equation modeling was used to analyze the data. The finding of this study indicates that gender has a negative impact on entrepreneurial aspiration. Accordingly, women are less likely than men to have growth expectation for their firms. Similarly, women are less fortunate enough than men to internationalize their product or service. With regard to entrepreneur’s innovativeness it is measured in three different ways. As a result, the variance in measurement necessitated to have different results. Consequently, from competitors’ as well as technological perspectives women are less likely than men to have Innovation for their firm. While from potential customer’s consideration regarding their products’ or services’ newness or unfamiliar, the finding shows the opposite result. On the other hand, in terms of entrepreneurial industry preference, the study founds the opposite result that indicates entrepreneur’s industry preference will not differ by gender. Future studies should focuses on comparative analysis to compare with other emerging countries to examine the impact of gender on entrepreneurial aspiration and how they overcome the challenges that might faces. The finding of this study has implications for researcher and policymakers. This research will be contributed to the entrepreneurship literature by incorporating the impact of gender on entrepreneurial aspiration in Africa.
