Energy Pricing, Energy Supply and FDI Competitiveness in Viet Nam: An assessment of foreign investor sentiment
Foreign direct investment (FDI) has made a major contribution to Viet Nam’s impressive structural transformation and economic growth since the 1990s.
As the country continues to pursue an ambitious development agenda, with FDI likely to play a central role in this process, it is important for policy-makers to better understand the needs and concerns of foreign businesses regarding energy supply and pricing. The satisfaction of businesses with domestic energy market conditions may be one factor in determining the ease with which Viet Nam can attract the high-quality FDI that can help deliver key developmental goals.
This report discusses the issues of energy supply and pricing issues and provides recommendations for the design of an energy policy that addresses, in particular, the concerns and interests of FDI investors in Viet Nam in this sphere.
