NINH THUAN (VNS) — The Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV) yesterday signed an agreement to finance a medical equipment project for the central province of Ninh Thuan.
Under the document, the bank will provide nearly VND10 billion ($470,000) to purchase medical equipment for three satellite hospitals and the Ninh Thuan preventive health centre expansion project.
Addressing the signing ceremony, Thai Phuong Phien, Director of Ninh Thuan General Hospital, pledged to use the funds and accelerate personnel training to operate the new machines.
