One of the aspects under the coverage of EVFTA, which is considered to have significant and direct impacts on Vietnam's legal framework is Government Procurement. This is an institutional aspect that until now the country has not been bound by any international entry-into-enforcement agreements.

The review of Vietnam's legal framework against EVFTA commitments on Government Procurement is conducted by Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) with analyses about the compatibility of Vietnam's legal framework against commitments from the perspectives of its firms (tendering participants). From this, recommendations are made to guarantee the conformity to the Agreement in the most beneficial ways for firms.

This Review belongs to a series of reviews of Vietnam's legal framework against EVFTA commitments on five important aspects (including Government procurement, Government procurement, Intellectual property, Customs and trade facilitation, and Transparency). All of these reviews are carried out by Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) in the Program titled "The readiness of Vietnam's legal framework in implementing EVFTA" with the supports of the Embassy of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and North
Ireland in Vietnam.
