5. Proposals:

Topic 1. Agricultural insurance
In recent years, despite receiving a lot of support from the government, agricultural insurance revenue has reached only 0.11% of total non-life insurance revenue. A dilemma situation exists persistently in agricultural insurance. The farmers who face low risk are not inclined to purchase insurance, while the insurance companies tend not to involve in this market where there is too much risk. Therefore, which factors that attract farmers to participate in agricultural insurance (especially with the appropriate premium) is an important issue that need to be addressed.
Topic 2. Financial literacy
According to the Global Financial Literacy Survey 2014 of Standard and Poor’s, the financial literacy of Vietnam, along with some other ASEAN countries, is ranked at the bottom of the list. This situation adversely affects the accessibility to financial services of individuals and businesses, especially small and medium enterprises. Consequently, implications for improving the financial literacy of business, especially small and medium enterprises, should be investigated.
Topic 3. Systemic banking
In the context of financial integration, with increasing capital flows, and thereby an increasing spillover effect of the instability from developed countries to developing countries, systemic risk is considered a potential risk for the banks in developing countries. In order to minimize risks, it is necessary to understand the perceptions and behaviors of employees in Vietnamese banks on systemic risk.
