VIETNAM: Roadmap for Natural Gas Market Development

The recommended Gas Market Roadmap sets out a sequence of gas sector reform measures covering the legal framework, planning process, institutional structure, gas market mechanisms, and infrastructure development. The pace of the proposed reforms is designed to be evolutionary and conservative, avoiding a “big bang” industry restructuring that could present insurmountable implementation challenges given Viet Nam’s current policy and institutional setting. The reform roadmap was also designed to be compatible with the on-going reform program in the electricity sector.
