Quang Ninh province assists Chinese region in COVID-19 fight

The northern border province of Quang Ninh on February 20 presented items as support for the neighbouring Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic.

Handing over the assistance on Bac Luan II Bridge that links Quang Ninh’s Mong Cai city with Guangxi’s Dongxing city, Standing Vice Secretary of the Vietnamese province’s Party Committee Ngo Hoang Ngan expressed sympathies for the Chinese side on the difficulties facing them in the COVID-19 combat.

He affirmed that his province always stands side by side with the Chinese region to take concerted and drastic measures to curb the epidemic.

The official asked Quang Ninh and the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region to keep coordinating closely to boost communications to raise public awareness of the disease.

Ngan also hoped that the Chinese region will use the support effectively to help its people contain COVID-19, thereby helping to maintain bilateral trading activities.

For his part, Sun Dawei, Vice Secretary of the Party Committee of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, appreciated Quang Ninh’s material and spiritual support which, he said, demonstrated the friendship and solidarity between the two localities.

Earlier, many localities and units in Quang Ninh had also supported the Chinese side with medical materials to prevent and control COVID-19.
