Besides the vaccine donation, Germany and Vietnam are also cooperating in activities worth up to 104 million euros ($121.65 million) in the areas of technical and vocational training, pandemic prevention, social security and digitalization.

These include the establishment of a center for pandemic prevention together with the Vietnamese Ministry of Health and the creation of advisory services to combat illegal wildlife trade.
