As you might know, a Framework Agreement between The Government of Viet Nam, represented by the Minister of Industry and Trade and Development Partners for the establishment of the Viet Nam Energy Partnership Group (“VEPG”) is under preparation.

The overall objective of VEPG is to ensure effective and efficient utilization of international support to the energy sector.

The preparation team (EU TAF Vietnam Energy Partnership Group) would like to collect views from different stakeholders through some interviews and possibly also written exchanges, including businesses and business organizations. In this line, the team  is interested in getting the views from VBF on the Framework Agreement. They sent a request of collecting feedback through VBF Energy-Sub WG.

According to the preparation team, MOIT plans to submit the Framework Agreement for the approval of the Prime Minister which would entrust MOIT to lead the VEPG and enable it to involve other ministries as well as invite the (deputy) Prime Minister for high level events if needed.

VBF Energy-Sub WG would like to enclose the documents related to the Framework Agreement to seek for your comments/feedback before they take part in interviews and have written feedback on the Agreement.

The preparation team welcomes you to comment freely on any aspect of the attached documents, and in particular to provide them feedback on the questions in the following files.

Your feedback should be sent to VBF Secretariat at before Tuesday 20 September 2016.
