In June 2021 the National Assembly of Vietnam, passed a Law on Public-Private Partnership (PPP Law). The PPP Law establishes a legal framework for PPP projects. After that, the Government issued Decree No. 35/2021/ND-CP dated March 29, 2021 of the Government detailing and guiding the implementation of the Law on Investment in the Form of Public-Private Partnership, and Decree No. 28/2021/ND-CP dated March 26, 2021 of the Government providing the financial management mechanism applicable to investment projects in the form of public-private partnership.

- Provide information to Investors on general requirements on contracts and terms of dispute settlement between parties in investment projects under the method of public-private partnership issued under Decree 35/2021/ND-CP , as well as some specific provisions in the form of BOT contract in transport projects issued under Circular 22/2022/TT-BGTVT
- Sharing lessons learned from international experts on disputes between investors and government agencies in some countries (Spain, Thailand), and recommendations on contract negotiation between Contracting Authority and the Investors.
