HANOI -- Foreign investors in Vietnam are calling for the government to allow them to help with the country's vaccination drive as it struggles to control outbreaks in key industrial provinces in the north.

"The government has been one of the world leaders in preventing the spread of COVID-19. The challenge now is to match that success with an ambitious and accelerated mass vaccination program," Alain Cany, chairman of the European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam, told Nikkei Asia on Friday.
