He praised Ho Chi Minh City’s creative initiatives to get the military, local authorities, and agencies to ensure the food supply to city residents during this social distancing period.
While inspecting COVID-19 prevention and control in Long An province, Mr. Thanh asked local authorities to take care of individuals, particularly workers and farmers, who are impacted by the pandemic.
Long An is a buffer zone which supplies agricultural products and other essential goods to Ho Chi Minh City, the Deputy PM noted, adding that the province should prioritize vaccinating and protecting shippers to avoid supply chain disruptions.
