Development of Public Private Partnership Support Facility in Vietnam

The Vietnamese Government is pursuing a major infrastructure push of around USD 170 billion over the next ten years with at least 50% coming from the private sector. To facilitate this, DFID has assigned Rebel, IMC, Scriptoria and Mekong Economics to set up a Public Private Partnership Support Facility. The PPP Facility aims to support the Government of Vietnam in developing and implementing the policy, institutional and legal framework to achieve high quality and equitable infrastructure services.

We will work with DFID and the Vietnamese Ministry of Planning and Investment in coordination with the UK Team (DFID, Embassy and UK Trade and Investment - UKTI) to help the Government of Vietnam to deliver concrete progress on PPP implementation. The focus is on improving the PPP legal and institutional frameworks, capacity building/training, communicating with the public and private sector, and identifying and developing PPP concept projects. We will also be helping to promote and transfer UK PPP knowledge and entry of UK firms in Vietnam.
