The 6th meeting of the OPPS Forum was held on July 21 for the purpose of mutual exchange and information sharing among members. Continuing from last time, the event was held online, with a total of 18 regular members from 9 companies and 2 observers from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. In addition, Mr. Shiro Muto and Mr. Kazuhide Oya, lawyers from the local office of Nishimura & Asahi, joined us as lecturers from Vietnam.
In addition to introducing new projects, we received the latest information on the Vietnam PPP bill (2020) from Vietnam. In addition, the secretariat introduced trends in overseas infrastructure PPPs in Japan, trends in overseas economies during the corona crisis, and PPP-related information in each area overseas. Although it is difficult to travel to other countries due to the corona crisis, it was a meaningful time to deepen my studies and keep an eye out for new projects.
