A China Eastern Airlines plane landed on Sunday at Zagreb Airport carrying on board 12.5 tonnes of medical equipment needed to fight the COVID-19 virus, the first of its kind to arrive from China with equipment needed by the healthcare system and indeed all services.
At the same time, with the arrival of 10 tonnes of protective equipment last night on a flight from Shanghai to Frankfurt, the Government of the Republic of Croatia has provided over 20 tonnes of protective masks, protective suits and safety glasses to Croatia. The equipment will be transported from Frankfurt to Croatia today.
This is another example of the quality co-operation between Croatia and China, which was discussed by Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang on Friday. The two prime ministers discussed further procurement of health equipment from China and a Chinese donation of protective equipment, as part of a joint effort to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
