They were impressed by information about Vietnam’s achievements in disease response when it has so far reported over 340 coronavirus-positive cases and no fatalities, although it has a population of over 97 million and holds a long borderline with China – the first outbreak.

Ambassador Tran Ngoc An said that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a negative impact on Vietnam’s economic growth targets, but the country is still considered one of the most positively growing economies in the region, with strong recovery to a growth rate of at least 6.8 percent in 2021.

He added that the webinar is one of the activities the embassy has coordinated with agencies and organizations in the UK to boost collaboration between the two countries to address negative impacts of the pandemic, especially in 2020 when they are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their strategic partnership.
