The purpose of this paper is to study on the risk and preparedness for emergency of a multinational company (MNC) based in Vietnam. This research can assist other MNCs to understand the risk they may face and formulate the necessary emergency preparation to do business in Vietnam.
This study uses the risk management model as a guideline and risk matrix table as a tool of analysis. This research is an exploratory study base and relevant primary data are gathered through structured interviews and secondary data through the MNC web site and published financial reports.
