Serbia agrees China, UAE on Sinopharm vaccine production

On Monday, Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić signed a memorandum of understanding and cooperation with partners from China and the United Arab Emirates on producing the Chinese Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine in Serbia, and once again urged citizens to get their jabs.

“This is an extremely important day for Serbia and for the entire region because we’ll have the vaccine here, closer, it will be more available and we’ll be able to fight the coronavirus pandemic more readily, in a fight that continues in Serbia, Europe and the whole world,” Brnabić said.

She stressed that this was a continuation of cooperation that began in the darkest times of the COVID-19 crisis when two PCR testing labs were built in a joint effort with China, but that it was also the result of a visit by Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić to the UAE in March when he negotiated cooperation on erecting a vaccine plant.

Chinese Ambassador to Serbia Chen Bo said the signing of the memorandum was an important step in cooperation on joint production of Chinese vaccines against COVID-19 and a new start to cooperation in the pharmaceutical industry.
