The Managing Director of the Chinese construction giants, CCECC, Micheal Jiang, says the company participated in the delivery of a 300-bed COVID-19 treatment facility at the ThisDay Dome in Abuja owing to its commitment to the development of the country and wellbeing of Nigerians.
He said on Thursday in Abuja that the commissioning of the ThisDay Dome facility was an important step towards combating COVID-19 as the facility was designed to supplement the medical resources in the country.
According to him, the CCECC delivered on its assigned mandate in record time within two months of receiving the request.
