PM works with leaders of AstraZeneca

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh had a working session with leaders of the British-Swedish multinational pharmaceutical and biotechnology company AstraZeneca in the UK on November 2 (local time).



The Vietnamese leader thanked AstraZeneca for its timely supply of vaccines to Vietnam over the past time, thereby making an important contribution to the country’s COVID-19 control.

The Prime Minister suggested AstraZeneca soon hand over the remaining vaccines committed to Vietnam on schedule.

AstraZeneca and Vietnamese partners have reached landmark agreements to help develop the biopharmaceutical industry in the country and support its pandemic prevention and control efforts.

The company will invest 90 million USD to support Vietnam to improve its pharmaceutical production capacity. In the 2022-2030 period, it plans to make three important pharmaceutical products in Vietnam.

In addition, AstraZeneca and the Vietnam Vaccine Joint Stock Company also signed an agreement on supply of an additional quantity of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine./.
