Speaking at the event, President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) Nguyen Phuong Nga shared Vietnam’s experience in combating COVID-19, with the motto “fighting the epidemic like fighting the enemy” kept in mind.
As the ASEAN Chair 2020, Vietnam has worked closely with other member states to contain the novel coronavirus through an unified, multi-sectoral and community-based approach, she said.
The ASEAN countries, in many ways, have cooperated closely with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and partners, including China, to produce prompt and effective response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Nga added.
She urged the countries to maintain a peaceful, stable and cooperative environment in the region to push back the epidemic and economic recession.
Solidarity and mutual assistance are the key for all countries to overcome this difficult time, she said.
Nga went on to say that VUFO is committed to coordinating closely with friendship organisations of the ASEAN nations to enhance exchanges and foster partnership between them and China./.
