On March 16, the flight carrying anti-epidemic medical supplies donated by COSCO SHIPPING to the Liguria Region of Italy left for Italy from Shanghai Pudong International Airport. These medical supplies include 50,000 face masks and 200 medical protective suits, with a total value of 450,000 yuan.
After the outbreak of COVID-19 in Europe, Italy faces a shortage of medical supplies and equipment. COSCO SHIPPING acted immediately in an effort to find some face masks and protective suits to support Italy’s battle against the epidemic. On the afternoon of March 13, these medical supplies were delivered to Shanghai Pudong International Airport from the COSCO SHIPPING headquarters.
A shipment departure ceremony was held at the COSCO SHIPPING headquarters. Mr. Sun Jiakang, Director of the Board of COSCO SHIPPING and a Council member of the Business Forum Italy-China (BFIC) attended the ceremony and declared departure of the shipment.
