Approaching international regulations

Actually, in Vietnam, investments in form of PPP have been carried out since 1997 when the Government issued the Decree 77/ND-CP on investment regulations in form of BOT (Building- Operation- Transfer) applied in local investments. After many times of modifying and changing, investment modal in form of PPP has gradually been approaching international regulations.

Currently, invesments in form of PPP and contents of choosing investors are regulated in the Decree no.63/2018/ND-CP dated May 4th, 20018 (Decree 63/CP) and the Decree no.30/2015/ND-CP dated March 17th, 2015 (Decree 30/CP): investors have responsibilities to raise owners’ enquity and other legal capital sources to implement signed contracts in accordance to proportion of raising enquity regulated in the Decree 63/CP. For contracts of building-transfer (BT), investors should have a requirement on owners’ equity (if there is) in accordance to regulations on investment, construction, accommodation, property business when carrying out other projects.

The capital from the Government is to ensure financial feasibility of the project, coming from public investment capital. However, it is not applied for BT projects.

Assisting capital for additional works, compensation, land clearance and relocation also come from capital source of public invesment

Investors believe the law

On the morning of November 11th, 2019, the Government officially summited the draft of the law of investment in form of PPP to the Assembly to consider.

Investment in form of PPP is a form of investment implemented on the basis of project contract between Governmental authorized offices and investors, enterprises to build, improve, operate or to manage infrastructure works or to provide public services.

In the group discussion in the Assembly of the same day, PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc said although sources in the people are great, they will not use them for investment if there is no protection from the law. Also according to the PM, investors believe law, not decrees. So there should be a law to protect investors. “There are obstacles in the existing law, so investors are not willing to have more investments to Vietnam,” said the PM.

Many delegates said it was necessary to have law on PPP so that the people can have the best public services. And investors should have enough information to consider if they should participate in the project and if their capability is suitable to it. The Minister of the Ministry of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung said:” We have a lot of “rights”, but investors also have a right of deciding whether they should invest in a project or not. And PPP law should have fair, attractive regulations so that investors are willing to invest in projects and they feel safe.”
