Speaking at its opening, Nguyen Dinh Anh, head of the Ministry of Health’s Department of Communications, Emulation and Reward, said the event, returning after two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, offers an ideal platform for Vietnamese and foreign professionals in the medical and pharmaceutical industries to meet and exchange experiences.

It also offers companies the opportunity to promote their products and expand their market, and seek investment, he added.
