HANOI -- Vietnam is committed to restoring supply chains, Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh said Monday, after its coronavirus lockdown disrupted a key production base for global companies.

Chinh answered questions from Japanese news organizations in writing ahead of his arrival at Tokyo's Haneda airport Monday for a four-day visit. He is slated to meet with his Japanese counterpart, Fumio Kishida, on Wednesday.
