In the China’s critical anti-pandemic stage, Burma extended the help and offered great supports to China. Since the emergence of first confirmed COVID-19 case in Burma, Chinese government and the China-invested enterprises in Burma proactively provided anti-pandemic supplies to Burma. I hereby would like to extend sincere gratitude and appreciation to the donations of Chinese enterprises and organizations. 2 negative pressure ambulances donated by BAIC Foton without any collateral condition this time show the deep Sino-Burma friendship and the spirit of community of shared future helping and supporting each other. Sino-Burma will move forward the “The Belt and Road” construction as per the principle of achieving shared growth through discussion and collaboration, build with great efforts the Sino-Burma “The Belt and Road” to a health road safeguarding the people’s health and safety, boost the work resumption and economic development of Burma, and restore the Burmese people to normal life.”
