Abstract. Despite the importance of social capital (SCt), its influence on supply chain (SC) resilience and performance is not sufficiently understood. The aim of the research is to analyze the relationship between social capital, supply chain resilience and supply chain performance. This paper is survey-based research which used data of 203 firms from Hanoi. The hypothesis model is examined by structural equation modeling. Empirical examinations indicate that social capital positively impacts supply chain resilience and performance. The outcomes of our study could provide a guideline for practitioners on improving the ability of supply chain to cope with changes and help firms avoid disruptions and improve SC performance
