An overview of the meeting

The General Department of Logistics organizes experienced military medical delegations to give timely response in terms of emergency aid and treatment; directs relevant units to ensure food hygiene and safety, disease prevention at each stopover; and coordinates with local medical facilities to stay ready to handle medical situations on the way to designated positions.

To ensure safety and progress of the maneuverability of forces and vehicles, Gen. Cuong asked functional agencies to make thorough preparations, check technical conditions of vehicles and equipment, keep smooth communications, and give timely support to drivers.

He also requested agencies and units to boost education to raise their troops’ awareness of strictly observing Road Traffic Law, and closely coordinate with each other to ensure logistics supplies, technical services and medical work during the trip. In addition, they should get updated information on traffic jams, landslides, and others to devise response plans and put their forces and vehicles on standby as requested.
