How to join a PPP project in Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City)

I helped an international company to contact Thai Binh province and Da Nang city to inquiry about their PPP projects and here is what I learned:

Foreign company without office/branch in Vietnam is welcome to join a PPP project.

To join this project, the investor need to:

+ send an official letter to People’s Committee and Department of Planning and Investment
of province to suggest making a proposal about the project, ask for information they want to ask,
arrange a visit. The visit must provide exact date and attendants.
+ After the proposal of the project is approved,
investor will discuss with people’s committee to make feasibility study report (FSR).
+ When the FSR is approved, investor can receive some benefits as investor
and can start other steps to implement the project.
Below are some information of Hoa Khanh Industrial Zone waste water project at Da Nang:
