[China formally joins the new crown pneumonia vaccine implementation plan] Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying answered reporters' questions about joining the "new crown pneumonia vaccine implementation plan": On October 8, China signed an agreement with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, and China officially joined the new crown pneumonia vaccine Implementation Plan. This is an important measure for China to uphold the concept of a community of human health and fulfill its commitment to promote vaccines as a global public product.
At present, the new crown epidemic is still in a global pandemic, seriously threatening the lives and health of people in all countries. Ensuring that developing countries have equal opportunities to obtain suitable, safe and effective vaccines is China's constant focus. China solemnly promises that after China's vaccine research and development is completed and put into use, it will be provided as a global public product with priority to developing countries. To this end, China maintains close communication with the "Implementation Plan" and takes a positive attitude towards joining the "Implementation Plan." Although China’s multi-vessel vaccine R&D is at the international leading level and has sufficient production capacity, we have decided to join the "implementation plan". The purpose is to promote the fair distribution of vaccines with practical actions, ensure that vaccines are provided for developing countries, and at the same time drive more companies. Capable countries join and support the "implementation plan". By joining the "implementation plan", China will also strengthen vaccine cooperation with relevant countries.
China will continue to work with all parties to the "implementation plan" to make China's contribution to global solidarity in fighting the epidemic and protecting the lives and health of people around the world.
