Market Report, "Vietnam Infrastructure Report Q4 2014", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Oct 22 2014

While we maintain that the Vietnamese infrastructure sector boasts strong potential owing to the country's robust economic growth outlook, high leve ls of foreign direct investment and an improving business environment, our real growth forecasts for the sector for 2014 and 2015 remain subdued at just 1.3% and 4.3% respectively.

The major developments in Vietnam's infrastructure sector are:

* Our relatively downbeat forecast for infrastructure sector growth in 2014 results from the fact that the sector's recovery is taking longer than expected. Specifically, we note that there is a lack of upside in near-term spending from the domestic public and private sectors, which is brought on by the dominance and excessiveness of the country's state-owned enterprises. While the existence of these SOEs makes it easier for the government to channel resources directly to certain projects, their structure remains unwieldy and inefficient.
* The government of Vietnam has announced that it will implement 14 new infrastructure projects in Ho Chi Minh City, including the repair and improvement of Luong Dinh Cua Street and the construction of the new Hanoi Expressway-Eastern Ring Road link road. The project list will also include five elevated highways, and is slated to cost USD9.4bn.
* The Vietnamese government is planning a 330km-long, USD4bn ring road project around capital Hanoi. The road is slated to pass through 36 separate districts. The government has also announced the construction of a monorail project around Hanoi aimed at decreasing congestion within the crowded city.
