Donation to Vietnam Fund for Vaccination Prevention of Coronavirus Disease 2019
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the people, their families and related parties affected by the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19).
The Vaccine Fund for purpose of procuring, R&D and production of COVID-19 Vaccine for Vietnamese people was established by Vietnamese Government at the end of May 2021 for public fund raising as one of measures to tackle with the spread and seriousness of new wave of coronavirus infection in Vietnam.
In respond to the call from Vietnamese Government, JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corporation (JX) (President and CEO: Hiroshi Hosoi) donated 50,000 United States Dollar (about 5.25 million yen) to the above Vaccine Fund on July 6, 2021 as a part of our social contribution to Vietnam, a country where we have been carrying out our business for a long time.
In addition, a corresponding local fund was established by Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, where the local office of Japan Vietnam Petroleum Company Limited (JVPC) (President: Takao Hashimoto), a subsidiary of JX, is located. JVPC donated 200 Million Vietnamese Dong (about 1 million yen) to the local fund on June 11, 2021.
JX, as a member of ENEOS group, will contribute to the development of civil society through social contribution activities as stated in the ENEOS Group Code of Conduct.
