BMI View : Our outlook for Vietnam ' s construction and infrastructure sector remains positive, supported by strong economic growth, regulatory changes, large FDI inflows and strong project pipeline.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

  • Our outlook for Vietnam's construction industry remains positive and we forecast real growth of 5.5% and 6.3% in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

  • We forecast transport infrastructure growth to peak at 6.8% in 2016. The Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee has submitted for a list of priority transportation projects to government, for approval, that will be developed in a public-private partnership (PPP) format between 2016 and 2020, including a monorail line project, which underscores the significant growth potential of the sector.

  • With power consumption expected to almost double between 2016 and 2025, we expect energy and utilities infrastructure to grow at an annual average rate of 5% during this period. There is a long list of projects in the pipeline as the government plans to step up the country's power generation to meet growing demand and avoid further power shortages.

Risk/Reward Index

  • Vietnam has kept its score of 54.3 out of 100 in our Asia Pacific infrastructure Risk/Reward Index. It remains in the lower half of the rankings in 13th position, out of 21 countries. This is largely owing to the high business risks due to corruption and significant potential for delays to project development.

  • The country has one of the fastest moving business environments in the region. Rapid expansion has raced ahead of the regulatory environment and after Indonesia the country is an outperformer among emerging South East Asian countries in terms of rewards.

  • Industry Risks are the largest hurdle for Vietnam as the country continues to score only 40 in this category, below the regional average of 61. This is indicative of structural weaknesses in the infrastructure sector, which in turn pose long-term risks to investors.
