One of the prominent and practical achievements of the trip is the support from the international community, especially to Viet Nam’s pandemic fight and the socio-economic restoration and development.
Besides the 1.05 million doses of Abdala vaccine from Cuba transported by the special plane, foreign countries and partners committed and provided another 1.5 million doses to Viet Nam and the US committed a large quantity of vaccines to Viet Nam through the COVAX mechanism in the time to come.

Besides vaccine doses, many partners helped Viet Nam witth medical equipment valued at 8.8 million USD.
