Nitin Kapoor-Chairman and general director AstraZeneca Vietnam At AstraZeneca, our scientists, lab researchers, medical, regulatory and corporate affairs teams, amongst others, have worked tirelessly to see this day. We told ourselves that this is probably the only chance in our lifetime to play such an important role in fighting a pandemic of this scale. It was our duty to offer our best to protect the people. We worked closely with the Vietnamese government, the Ministry of Health, VNVC, and other partners to deliver and support the bilateral donations of more than 70 million doses of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine. Our motivation was to ensure that Vietnam would be one of the first countries in Asia to have access to vaccines to save lives. Vietnam now possesses one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, and we cannot be prouder of what we have accomplished together. But as a healthcare company, our responsibility does not stop there. While the hardest part of the … [Read more...] about AstraZeneca: three healthcare priorities in the new normal

LVB was established on June 22, 1999 and had charter capital of 791.3 billion LAK (100 million USD at the date of capital contribution). Present in nine of the 18 provinces and cities in Laos, it is Vietnam’s leading commercial bank and also one of the three largest financial institutions in the country, with total assets currently approximating 1.1 billion USD - ranking third in the local banking system. Speaking highly of the bank’s development over the last 23 years, Chairman Hue, who is paying an official visit to Laos, said BIDV should help promote investment and give advice to Vietnamese firms planning to invest and do business in Laos. As bilateral trade stands at only 1.3 billion USD at present, much lower than the target of 2 billion USD, enterprises should make use of the Lao market, which is in close proximity to Vietnam. Aside from credit services, BIDV and its LVB need to develop non-credit ones so as to help achieve that target, he went on. The great friendship, … [Read more...] about N.A.
