The Embassies of Russia and Ukraine in Vietnam signed an agreement to receive the ventilators on May 6 in Hanoi.
Accordingly, Vingroup will present 1,000 VFS-410 ventilators and 500 VFS-510 ventilators to Russia, and 600 VFS-410 ventilators and 300 VFS-510 ventilators to Ukraine.
The invasive ventilators include Vsmart VFS-410 and VFS-510, the two “made in Vietnam” invasive ventilators which have been completed and manufactured entirely within the Vingroup ecosystem, with a localisation rate of up to 70%.
The ventilators are currently being assessed by quality management agencies and the Medical Council of Vietnam, ensuring compliance with quality standards for product circulation in Vietnam.
Nguyen Viet Quang, Vice Chairman and CEO of Vingroup said that “By giving 2,400 invasive ventilators, Vingroup hopes to actively contribute to the effective treatment of medical forces in Russia and Ukraine for COVID-19 patients. This shows the group’s gratitude to the two countries for supporting its start-up process.”
At the same time, Vingroup is promoting the supply of ventilator models for Russia and Ukraine to carry out quality inspection procedures in accordance with their current regulations.
The group will officially hand over 2,400 ventilators after being granted product circulation licences by Russia and Ukraine.
Vingroup is one of the pioneering enterprises in Asia in sponsoring and supporting the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic with a total sponsorship fund of nearly VND600 billion (US$25.7 million), excluding funding for investment in manufacturing ventilators.
