PM Pham made the above statement at his reception for Chargé d'Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Viet Nam Christopher Klein and American business representatives.

Given the difficulties posed by the pandemic, he said a special working group of the Prime Minister was established with the prime task of removing obstacles for businesses and people.

Pham also said he has tasked relevant ministries and agencies to envisage COVID-19 adaptive recovery plan while drastically implementing free vaccination campaign for all, including foreign experts and industrial workers.

As the COVID-19 pandemic is a global issue which requires stakeholders to join hands and share risks, the PM extended sincere thanks to the U.S. for having gifted Viet Nam with vaccines and medical equipment so far, calling on the Chargé d'Affaires and American investors to lend a voice so that the U.S. Administration and partners would continue assistance, especially vaccines, for Viet Nam’s fight against the pandemic.

Klein and American business representatives expressed their belief that with the joint efforts of the Governments, business communities and people of Viet Nam, and the U.S., both nations would soon overcome difficulties caused by the pandemic and the Viet Nam-U.S. comprehensive partnership would grow and flourish in a more substantive and effective manner across fields./.
