Public-private partnership (PPP) projects have been implemented in Vietnam to provide facilities in the context of the State budget deficit. These projects were officially proposed by Ministries and provinces and have improved infrastructure conditions. Apart from solicited projects, Vietnamese legislation permits unsolicited proposals; however, to date no such projects have been accepted in this manner. Regulations for unsolicited proposals demonstrate drawbacks and reason why unsolicited proposals have not been applied in practice. This article examines the current regulations for unsolicited proposals for PPP projects in Vietnam. It uses the regulatory regimes of Australia and the Philippines by way of comparison with that of Vietnam to find recommendations to strengthen the regulations in Vietnam. This article concludes that despite the legislation on unsolicited proposals are in force, there are regulations and processes to be improved to deliver more effective project implementation.
