This project supports the implementation of the mechanism known as ‘Peer Review and Capacity Building on APEC Infrastructure Development and Investment’. The objectives of this project are to: 1) conduct a peer review on policies and practices, including relevant laws, regulations and guidelines, relating to the planning, selection and implementation process of infrastructure projects; and 2) identify the capacity building needs of the reviewed economy through the peer review and suggest capacity building activities based on the identified needs.
This report focuses on Viet Nam. As part of the review, Viet Nam is also benchmarked against a peer group to identify where it stands. The peer group is drawn from the membership of ASEAN. The findings from the review form the basis for recommendations on further steps that Viet Nam can take to make public–private partnership (PPP) projects more attractive and easier to develop and execute. This is the second economy profiled, the first being the Philippines.
