Especially, out of the 14 technical assistance projects, the one on building a center for epidemic forecasting and management proposed by the Health Ministry as an emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic will receive €15 million EUR (US$ 17.6 million) in non-refundable ODA.

The European country is also among the biggest ODA providers for Viet Nam. It has provided more than US$2 billion for ODA projects in Viet Nam since 1990 through technical and financial cooperation, with technical cooperation projects implemented in the form of non-refundable aid.
