To strengthen and transform the nature of public-private partnerships (PPPs), the Government of Vietnam embarked on a new PPP Law that aimed to change the rules, systems, and processes for PPPs in Vietnam to attract new PPP players and investments (both domestic and foreign). The USAID Learning, Evaluation, and Analysis Project (LEAP III), implemented by Integra LLC, was engaged by USAID/Vietnam to support this effort through a series of activities involving three primary stakeholders: The Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI), the National Assembly (NA), and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI).

The activity substantively moved the needle forward in terms of PPPs in Vietnam and had three primary outputs:

  1. Developing and adopting the new PPP Law and implementing regulations;
  2. Building capacity for the National PPP Committee and its partnerships with policymakers and investors; and
  3. Piloting PPP implementation at the provincial level.

This report reviews the major achievements across these outputs, as well as provide lessons learned and recommendations going forward.
