Union Health Minister Dr Thet Khaing Win expressed his thank to China for the assistance provided by China to the Myanmar Infectious Disease Control Centre and the Health Staff Training Centre to be opened by the end of 2023.

Afterwards, the two countries mutually signed the record of the transfer of vaccines and the Union minister returned the letter of appreciation. Then, the Union minister, the ambassador and the guests had documentary photos taken before closing the ceremony.—MNA/KZW
