Improving Vietnam’s physical infrastructure is a key issue for AmCham and many of our members. While there has been some progress in certain areas, there are still deficiencies and delays in the development of key infrastructure – especially inter-provincial roads, bridges, including approach roads, electric power, strategically located seaports and their related land-side infrastructure and intra-city public transportation such as light rail. Many prospective foreign investors point to infrastructure deficiencies and inadequate logistics as a major deterrent to doing business here. On March 12, AmCham welcomes KPMG’s Julian Vella for a presentation and discussion on infrastructure in Vietnam.
Julian Vella is the Asia-Pacific Regional Leader for KPMG’s Global Infrastructure Practice and is a member of KPMG’s Global Infrastructure Leadership team. Previously, he spent 5 years as National Head of Infrastructure for KPMG Australia – the largest such practice in KPMG worldwide. Julian has extensive experience as a lead adviser on a large range of commercial transactions, particularly in the transport and industrial markets sectors. His areas of expertise cover infrastructure projects and financing (including Public Private Partnerships), privatization, corporate strategy, corporate/debt restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, divestments, and business valuations.
