Abstract: The paper explicates the rising role of private-public partnerships (PPPs) in the ASEAN energy sector. PPPs are an important factor in this sector; as such partnerships have stimulated the decreasing roles of state enterprises, and raised some complicated issues regarding the convergence of the roles of state-owned enterprises and PPPs in this sector. This paper elaborates these issues and highlights the progress in the energy sector governance in ASEAN countries. It suggests some ideas and plans for managing PPPs, the market power held by the SOEs, and the competition law and policy for the ASEAN energy sector.

Keywords: private-public partnerships; PPPs; competition law and policy; ASEAN; infrastructure sectors.
