Abstract:
The presence of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Indonesia will contribute to the movement of the Indonesian economy, so its growth is an essential part that must be considered by the government. The goal of this study was to explore the role of innovative capabilities in improving the performance of Indonesian SMEs. A variable approach to social capital, entrepreneurial leadership, innovation ability and SME efficiency was used in this research. The research included a sample of 352 small and medium-sized enterprises in Pekanbaru, Indonesia, consisting of 19 medium-sized enterprises and 333 small enterprises out of a total population of 2887 small and medium-sized enterprises (the sampling methodology used was chance sampling and simple random sampling methods). The findings show that social capital does not explicitly have a substantial impact on the business performance of SMEs in Pekanbaru, but if it is mediated by creative capacities, social capital indirectly plays a role in improving the performance of SMEs. Entrepreneurial leadership has a big influence on SMEs.

Abstract:
This paper examines the effects of the business environment on the labor productivity of Vietnamese manufacturing firms in the period of 2010-2018 using enterprise-level panel data drawn from Vietnamese Annual Enterprise Censuses and province-level surveys of the Provincial Competitiveness Index. Results show that in addition to traditional determinants, variables related to ease of business are found to contribute significantly to the labor productivity throughout the sample.

Abstract:
Sustainability reporting, under organizational reporting framework, gives information about economic, environmental, social, and governance performance (GRI). Corporate sustainability reporting has a strong practice of environmental reporting with corporate principles. Despite various guidelines such as GRI, the reporting and presentation of sustainable items are not common in practice. The study aims to analyze the current sustainability of Accounting Practices in Indian Cement Companies. To analyze the same, researchers have taken a case study of five prominent cement companies, JK Cement Ltd., Shree Cement Ltd., ACC Cement Ltd., Binani Cement Ltd., and Ambuja Cement. The study observed the common reporting methods of the selected companies under various common heads in the Indian Cement companies and later to make a comparison amongst them, further by taking the views of the company respondents, with a questionnaire. For measuring combined effect of the selected companies, financial and non-financial disclosure of the selected 13 items for sustainable reporting has been considered, and to analyze the independent variables having influenced upon the combined effect of dependent variables MANOVA statistical technique was applied. It was found that there is a critical difference in the reporting of financial and non-financial sustainability factors by Indian cement companies. The study concluded that the corporations should follow the best standards of environmental sustainability for strengthening their activities and documentation on sustainable growth.

Abstract:
The purpose of this study is to verify the impact of international financial reporting standards (IFRS) adoption on the quality of accounting performance and efficiency of investment decisions in the Saudi business environment as an emerging economy. In this study, content analysis approach is adopted for examining the annual reports of Saudi companies listed in Saudi stock exchange market during two periods: the pre-adoption of IFRS period during the year of 2016 and the post-adoption of IFRS period during the period 2017-2018. The study uses accounting information, accounting conservatism, earning management as alternative variables of accounting performance quality. In addition to accounting profit quality, liquidity and cost of capital are also used as alternative variables for the efficiency of investment decisions. The study finds that there was a positive impact of IFRS adoption on the quality of accounting performance, since it was positively related to both the qualitative characteristics of information and accounting conservatism, while it was negatively related to earning management. IFRS also improves the efficiency of investment decisions, as it was positively related to both profit quality and liquidity while it was negatively related to cost of capital.

Abstract:
This study was conducted to estimate the determinants as well as the efficiency of Vietnam’s footwear export to 50 trading partners by applying stochastic fronter gravity approach for the period 2001-2018. We found that Vietnam’s footwear export is positively affected by income measured by gross domestic product (GDP), border and landlock situation. The income elasticity of footwear export of Vietnam was about 1.2%. We also showed that the export efficiency of Vietnam’s footwear was not very high with the average ranges from 50.8% to 63.1%. The 10 most efficient countries were Cambodia, Panama, Slovakia, Belgium, Myanmar, Hongkong, Korea, Chile, the US and the Netherlands. We also found that 10 countries with the largest export potential were the US, China, Germany, Japan, Belgium, the UK, Netherlands, Korea, France, Canada. Regarding the determinants of export efficiency, the study provides evidence that trade freedom, financial freedom and importers’ population density positively contributed to efficiency. Our findings also support further integration of Vietnam since membership to many FTA enhances Vietnam’s footwear export efficiency. These FTAs include AFTA, Vietnam-Chile FTA, ASEAN-India FTA, ASEAN-Korean FTA, ASEAN-Japan FTA, ASEAN-China FTA, ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand FTA. Finally, the study recommends a relevant market policy for Vietnam’s footwear export in the coming years. We have provided 4 types of markets with different levels of priorities that Vietnam’s footwear exporters should focus on. The top footwear market priority should be countries with high potential yet low efficiency such as China, Russia, Brazil, Thailand, Sweden, Singapore and Australia.

Abstract:
This paper aims to contribute to the literature by examining whether audit committees' attributes affect risk disclosure practiced by Jordanian listed companies. Selecting a sample of 94 Jordanian companies listed on Amman Stock Exchange, the authors carried out a manual content analysis on annual reports to determine the level of risk disclosure. Random effect model was employed in the analysis. Empirical results show that the audit committee size had a positive effect on the level of risk disclosure. However, there was no evidence that the frequency of the audit committee meetings, expertise or overlapping of the audit committee membership were significantly related to the risk disclosure. The findings are important for standard setters to improve their comprehension about the influence of audit committee in disclosing risk information and reconsider the effective monitoring role played by audit committee.
