Viet Nam: MFF- SOE Reform and Corporate Governance Facilitation Program

Sovereign Project | 39538-013 Status: Active

Summary

The SRCGFP will support the agenda of the Government of Viet Nam for state-owned enterprise (SOE) reform by equitizing and transforming general corporations. Participating general corporations will be restructured under a comprehensive package of corporate and financial restructuring and enhanced operational efficiency and corporate governance. Debt restructuring will strengthen general corporation balance sheets through improved cash flows and debt-servicing capacity, generating additional resources for productive activities. None of the restructured debt will be nonperforming loans. Corporate restructuring will enable participating general corporations to exploit economies of both scale and scope by merging several small joint stock subsidiaries in each general corporation into larger entities organized along lines of business, combined with the divestiture of disparate non-core business units.

Description The SRCGFP will support the agenda of the Government of Viet Nam for state-owned enterprise (SOE) reform by equitizing and transforming general corporations. Participating general corporations will be restructured under a comprehensive package of corporate and financial restructuring and enhanced operational efficiency and corporate governance. Debt restructuring will strengthen general corporation balance sheets through improved cash flows and debt-servicing capacity, generating additional resources for productive activities. None of the restructured debt will be nonperforming loans. Corporate restructuring will enable participating general corporations to exploit economies of both scale and scope by merging several small joint stock subsidiaries in each general corporation into larger entities organized along lines of business, combined with the divestiture of disparate non-core business units. Additionally, management restructuring will enhance operational efficiency by strengthening corporate management processes and improving governance. OCR will be used to support financial and corporate restructuring, while operational restructuring and improved corporate governance will be supported by the complementary loan component funded from ADF resources.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Transforming and reforming are critical to reducing the dominance of inefficient state production, promoting private sector development, and enhancing economic growth. The Goverment's Socio-Economic Development Plan 2006-2010 calls for diversifying ownership to improve the efficiency and competitiveness of SOEs and for narrowing or eliminating the role of ministries and other state entities in SOE governance and management.
Impact Improved profitability and transparency of equitized and restructured SOEs, including large general corporations and their subsidiaries
