Day 2 Programme

09:00 – 10:30 FINANCE & LEGAL FORUM

The last couple of years has seen a number of M&A deals in the wind sector in Vietnam. This was primarily driven by the fact that the tariff regime in Vietnam had expired. A marriage of convenience was formed between local developers who didn’t have funds to develop and construct projects and investors who had the funds enabling them to enter Vietnam which has huge wind potential and capitalize on the attractive tariff. This session will cover criteria adopted for acquisitions, the risk associated with it and how to mitigate those risks. Additionally, it will also delve into the impact of how such M&A deals will have in the future of wind energy landscape of Vietnam.
