China Telecom (Europe) Ltd. makes donations to aid the fight against the epidemic in China
Covid-19, a new pneumonia type coronavirus infection is affecting a sizeable part of the population in China, particularly Wuhan.
Many European organisations with Chinese roots, including China Telecom (Europe) Ltd., CTE have been working hard to donate aid to those most affected in China. CTE with its network of European offices procured 34,000 medical masks and other much-needed supplies. These were shipped to China through the Hongyuan Group to the front line in Hubei to help alleviate the spread of the epidemic.
On the 17th of February, Ambassador ZHANG Ming, Head of the Chinese Mission to the EU, met with representatives from CTE and other European based Chinese companies that have donated supplies to China. During the meeting, Ambassador ZHANG discussed the progress that has been made in the prevention and control of the coronavirus epidemic and thanked all the businesses who are proactively assisting these efforts.
On the 25th of February, CTE procured a further 16,000 medical masks. With the assistance of the Chinese Embassy in Stockholm, these supplies were quickly cleared through customs to be dispatched to China. The shipment is being transferred to Hubei Charity Federation.
Although CTE is far from China Telecom Group’s Headquarters in Beijing, they share a deep concern for China and its people. Everyone in the business continues to work hard providing telecommunication solutions between Europe and China, at the same time, working hard to donate medical supplies to help battle the spread of Covid-19 in China.
