Hai Duong (VNA) - An online conference to connect the health sector of the northern province of Hai Duong with hospitals in the Republic of Korea (RoK) was held by the provincial People’s Committee and the V-Health Social Enterprise for Health Co. on December 17.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Luong Van Cau said the conference is a good opportunity to promote health care cooperation between Hai Duong and medical establishments in the RoK.
