AEON to contribute VND25 billion to Vietnam’s COVID-19 vaccine fund

The AEON Group has announced that it would contribute VND25 billion (around US$1.08 million) to Vietnam’s COVID-19 vaccine fund, joining hands with the Vietnamese Government to push back the pandemic.

The move was part of the group’s efforts in supporting governments of Southeast Asian countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to accelerate the purchase of vaccines and thereby help take measures against pandemic control and recover the economy.

“Vietnamese people are now making every effort to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the AEON Group decided to donate VND25 billion to Vietnam’s COVID-19 vaccine fund. We hope that AEON’s donation will support Vietnam to realise the goal of early vaccination for all people,” said Furusawa Yasuyuki, General Director of AEON Vietnam.

Yasuyuki added that the AEON Group will continue to stand side by side with the community and Vietnamese Government in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, work with the government in realising the dual goals of "maintaining and developing the socio-economy" and "fighting against the pandemic" toward a sustainable future in Vietnam.

Established officially in 2011, AEON Vietnam is operating in five retail business segments in Vietnam, including Shopping Malls, General Merchandise Stores and Supermarket, Specialty Store, Supermarkets and E-Commerce. AEON Vietnam has expanded its business footprints in six provinces and cities nationwide, with three Shopping Malls, three General Merchandise Stores & Supermarkets, 29 Specialty stores, two Supermarkets, AEONEshop e-commerce site and AEON Regional Distribution Centre in Ho Chi Minh City.
