As part of an ongoing negotiation, Valdes and his colleague, Nivaldo Linares, the IFV director of Clinical Research, visited the headquarters of the Vietnamese vaccine producing company and verified its high scientific and technological level, in addition to exploring future possibilities of cooperation.
