Hanoi 2023.Mar.11 Public-Private Partnership (PPP): Contract and dispute resolutions


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.

Looking back at the investment practice in the form of public-private partnership (PPP) in the past time, besides the achievements, the number of implemented projects and fields is still not really commensurate with the potential. capabilities of this method. Therefore, SCLVN cooperates with Foreign Trade University to organize a seminar on Investment in Public Private Partnership (PPP): Contracts and Dispute Resolution with 2 targets:

  • 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
