DFID is supporting the Government of Vietnam in its overall objective of increasing access to infrastructure services throughout Vietnam by leveraging private sector investment. IMC is leading a consortium to provide support to the Ministry of Planning and Investment to enable them to build capacity and regulatory frameworks to progress the delivery of infrastructure through public-private partnerships (PPP).
The project requires the unlocking of a number of restraints to PPP implementation across the country. Key among them is the development of infrastructure sector based guidelines and regulations, required to guide the development of PPP projects. IMC is also carrying out an initial capacity assessment of the current organisations, followed by putting in place improved regulatory structures that will facilitate private sector investment.
Along with providing capacity building and training, the team is working with the PPP Office and line Ministries in Vietnam to build up a pipeline of potential projects that are likely to be suitable for implementation as PPP projects, and from there develop the projects suitable for implementation. Infrastructure sectors include transport, energy, water, health and education.
