 Vietnamese businesses introduced their capacity to produce and supply medical supplies to Venezuela in response to the COVID-19 pandemic while attending a webinar held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Venezuela on September 11.

The event aimed to promote economic relations between the two nations, while helping Vietnamese firms participate more actively in the supply chains in the Latin American market amidst the complicated developments of COVID-19 and the region emerging as the pandemic epicenter.

At the webinar, Vietnamese Ambassador to Venezuela Le Viet Duyen affirmed the Vietnamese Government and people always attach much importance to the friendship and bilateral relations with Venezuela, particularly in the fields that both sides hold strengths.

Vietnam is willing to share experience in national construction, especially when the COVID-19 has been adversely affecting the socio-economic life and food security in the world and the region as well, he stressed.

The ambassador also highlighted Vietnam’s initial successes in realising the dual targets of COVID-19 prevention and socio-economic development, saying this is spurred by the Government’s drastic strategy on early detection, quarantine and treatment.

At the seminar, representatives from the two health ministries shared measures to fight against the pandemic, while Vietnamese firms introduced their capacity to produce and supply medical equipment such as ventilators, quick test kits, PCR kits, medical face masks, and protective gears, among others.

On the occasion, the Thanh Long Global Joint Stock Company, Thien An Pharmaceutical Company Limited committed to present Venezuela with 200,000 face masks, and the Thinh Long International Trading Joint Stock Company will donate 6,000 N95 face masks to the Venezuelan Ministry of Health.

Duyen expressed his belief that with support from the Vietnamese companies, the Venezuelan Government and people will control the COVID-19 pandemic soon, contributing to the socio-economic recovery as well as enhancing the sound comprehensive partnership between the two nations.

Earlier, the Vietnamese Embassy also had working sessions with the Venezuelan health and foreign ministries to promote agreements on medical cooperation and exchange.
