Hanoi has been given permission to speed up process of mobilizing capital and selecting contractors for urban infrastructure development projects in form of public-private partnership (PPP), per the Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung`s request.
Following the instruction, Hanoi is authorized to develop its own plan of choosing contractors under special conditions stipulated in the Bidding Law for each specific project, which will be later reviewed by the Ministry of Planning & Investment (MPI).
Dung requested the MPI to cooperate with related agencies in reviewing Hanoi’s proposal within 10 working days since the submission day.
Consequently, the process of selecting contractors for PPP transport – urban infrastructure projects in Hanoi will be reduced by 45 – 100 days.
In normal case, the process of selecting, negotiating and awarding contract for contractor of PPP project may be up to 700 days, informed the Hanoi People’s Committee.
With regard to Hanoi’s proposal on having permission of signing contract for category A project under the build – transfer (BT) form, Dung instructed the city to comply with the law.

Total investment of 20 projects under BT and BOT (build – operate – transfer) is VND128 trillion (US$5.6 billion).
Another 4 environment projects under BT and BOO (build – own – operate) projects are also expected to be implemented soon with total investment of VND8.6 trillion (US$379.2 million).
