ERIA Updates Country Profile and Comparative Table for PPP Framework in Five ASEAN countries
March 1st, 2013 - The Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) wholly updated the Country Profile and Comparative Table for Public Private Partnership (PPP) framework in five ASEAN countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam).
PPP has been more focused as one of the major procurement methods for infrastructure projects, as economies in the countries above steadily grow and infrastructure development demands expand there. Their policy makers have been proactively preparing and reinforcing existing regulations and systems of PPP. Also, business entities are keen on grasping latest trend of PPP in the countries for their potential investments. In order to meet strong needs from both policy makers and business entities and bridge between them, the Country Profile and Comparative Table were originally produced. This update was conducted through extensive investigations in each country. The Country Profile and Comparative Table enable readers to have gist of current PPP framework in the countries. The Country Profile describes institutional and regulatory framework and recent topics on PPP in the countries, functioning as an "introduction" to understand features of their PPP. The Comparative Table gives readers quick "summary" of important items including government supports, land acquisition and unsolicited proposals, and it clarifies "differences" and "uniqueness" of the five countries' PPP at a glance.
ERIA expects both policy makers in the countries and business entities to make good use of the documents for their PPP implementation and investment in the countries, resulting in accelerating infrastructure developments there. ERIA will continue to contribute toward further PPP development in ASEAN countries through researches and close cooperation with governments in the region.
