A ceremony of China-donated 1 million COVID-19 vaccines and 2-million-yuan worth of medical supplies to Myanmar was held virtually yesterday.
During the event, Chairman of China International Development Cooperation Agency (CIDCA) Mr Deng Boqing made an opening speech.
Then, Union Minister for Health Dr Thet Khaing Win expressed words of thanks to China for providing the vaccines and medical equipment, which were transported via Yunnan provisional government, to vaccinate the people living along the border area of Kachin and Shan states.
The ministry is conducting the vaccination programme to vaccinate the entire population of the country, including border areas under the leadership of the Provisional Government of Myanmar.
He also said as the mutations of the COVID-19 virus are currently occurring around the world, effective preventive measures play a key role and vaccine-producing countries should provide developing countries to be able to produce vaccines. Scientific research should be done in searching the source of the virus and it should not blame or give political pressure on other countries. He then expressed words of thanks for the donations on behalf of the Provisional Government and people.
Chinese Ambassador to Myanmar Mr Chen Hai, Vice-Governor of Yunnan Province Ms Li Malin, Governor of Dehong Dai and Jingpo Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China Mr Wei Gang and the Secretary-General of ASEAN delivered the video messages. — MNA
