European International University, Paris is immensely pleased and proud to announce that our Director General Dr. Edward Roy Krishnan has been appointed as the Vice-president and member of the board of directors of The Institute of Economic and Financial Studies (IEFS), Vietnam.
The Institute of Economic and Financial Studies (IEFS) is a research institution located in Vietnam. The main objective of IEFS is to provide comprehensive economic and financial research services to various stakeholders, including policymakers, business leaders, academics, and the general public.
IEFS is also involved in promoting and developing international trades and investment projects among countries, as well as providing consulting solutions for educational businesses and investments. The institute offers consulting services for studying abroad, immigration and citizenship, and labor export. Additionally, IEFS provides training programs in international credit, medical practice, vocational skills, collaborative business learning programs, dual awards for masters and doctoral degrees with international degrees for all Vietnamese universities.
Prof. Dr. Nguyen Duy Gia, a former Minister of the State Bank of Vietnam, served as the Director of IEFS from its founding until 2021. Under his leadership, the institute made significant contributions to the development of economic and financial research in Vietnam.
Vietnam: The land of opportunities. It is remarkable to note how far the country has progressed over recent years. Moving away from a centrally planned system into a market-based economy, Vietnam is now considered one of the most dynamic emerging markets. Vietnam has been enjoying an incredibly strong economic development. Its GDP growth in the last two decades has been among the fastest globally. According to the latest available data the number of bank branches in Vietnam has been growing steadily in recent years, reflecting the expansion of the country’s banking sector and the increasing demand for banking services among the population. The banking sector in Vietnam employs over 236,000 people. This figure includes staff working in both bank branches and head offices. It’s worth
noting that this number has likely increased since then, given the ongoing growth of the banking sector in Vietnam.
