Infrastructure Investment Projects

Practice Overview

Professionals in T C Masters have substantial experience in assisting both the government and private companies regarding private sector investing in infrastructure facilities, such as high-speed rail, inter-modal transportation, light rail and power projects and land-development projects by applying the Build-Operate-Transfer scheme and its variant arrangements (collectively, "BOT").

We have assisted the Ministry of Transportation and Communications ("MOTC") of Taiwan in establishing the legal framework for BOT projects under the Statute for Encouragement of Private Sector Participation in Transportation Facilities (the "Encouragement Statute"), as well as under its revised version, the Promotion Statute. We have assisted the government on revising the Encouragement Statute, on drafting the implementing rules of the Encouragement Statute, on establishing general bidding procedures, on drafting the general provisions of the concession contract between the government and private investors, and on other relevant legal requirements. We also have assisted the Public Construction Commission ("PCC") of the Executive Yuan of Taiwan in drafting the general BOT manuals for the government’s use in initiating, planning and executing BOT projects.

In addition, we have assisted private investors and consortia in structuring deals, preparing applications to the government for obtaining government concessions, negotiating contracts with the government, and other related matters.
