The shipment is poised to arrive in Vietnam in a month’s time, according to the Vietnamese Trade Office in India.
The office said the commitment was made following days of negotiations between the Vietnamese Embassy’s taskforce on COVID-19 drugs and vaccines and major pharmaceutical companies of India such as Hetero, Dr. Reddy, Cipla, Jubilant, Mylan, Zydus and Cadila.
The taskforce has held working sessions with relevant agencies of the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Indian Ministry of Commerce and Industry that pledged to create maximum conditions for businesses to complete export procedures.
“The early purchase of necessary special drugs from India will hopefully help us soon control and defeat the COVID-19 pandemic," said Vietnamese Ambassador to India Pham Sanh Chau.
