For the whole morning, the speakers shared the evaluation on the State’s policy on BOT model in infrastructure construction and operation, the overview of Draft BOT model contract in transportation infrastructure, and the opinion on practice in Vietnam and international experience on BOT model. Experts have brought forward many recommendations to troubleshoot and solve current problems in PPP regulations towards an effective legal environment to attract more foreign investors in infrastructure projects. Representing EuroCham, Mr Nguyen Hai Minh informed the audience with the latest updates of the European investment in Vietnam, their expectation on the investment and legal environment, especially in infrastructure projects, as well as the concerns from EU investors perspectives on the current regulations on PPP.
Closing the workshop, Mr. Loc shared that though the Law on PPP has been passed and effective as from Jan 2021, there remain obstacles in the long run. These barriers lie in not only delayed process created by legislation and administration procedures but also the complicated operation of managing bodies. Therefore, VIAC will continue to coordinate with related agencies to have further dialogues on idea exchanges in order to enhance and foster an effective implementation.
