China will also continue to export COVID-19 vaccines, while ensuring domestic needs are met, said Tian Yulong, chief engineer at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

"China's production capacity will continue to be released and output will continue to expand, and so will our supply both at home and abroad," said Tian at a press conference.

China has provided vaccine aid to more than 50 countries and exported the jab to 27 nations, data by the Foreign Ministry showed at the end of February, Tian said.

"I believe that China's high-quality and safe vaccines will be welcomed by more countries, and we are willing to make more efforts in this regard," Tian added.
