Pham Quang Hieu, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, thanked the overseas Vietnamese companies for their important and timely contributions to the national COVID-19 vaccine fund, in response to an appeal from leaders of the Party, Government, and the Vietnam Fatherland Front.
