During Thursday’s phone call, Minister Son applauded Australia's announcement that it will give Vietnam COVID-19 vaccines for children, in addition to the 7.8 million doses it has already donated. The valuable and timely help of the Australian Government will accelerate Vietnam's vaccination rollout, he said.
The two ministers said full reopening of the two countries will promote bilateral relations, especially in delegation and people-to-people exchanges, trade, agriculture, and labor.
