Hanoi (VNA) – The Online Business Mission – Medizintechnik conference took place in Hanoi on April 20 to discuss operation models in the health sector of Germany and Vietnam, opportunities for cooperation between their hospitals and businesses, and the importance of building their medical technical exchange networks.
Stefan Blechschmidt , director at the economic cooperation office under the German state Thuringia’s international cooperation department, said he wants to support collaborative projects in the fields of life sciences and healthcare in Vietnam.
