About the
agreement, Mr. Madan Krishnan, Vice President of Minimally Invasive Therapies
Group, Asia Pacific, Medtronic, said: “No single company can meet the global
ventilator demand alone. To further supplement supply to meet overwhelming
demand, we publicly shared the design specifications for our Puritan
Bennett™560 (PB560) ventilator system in March 2020 under a permissive license.
To further ramp up our own production, we have been collaborating with a number
of international partners who can supplement part of the production process.
The partnership with Vingroup will be one that will see them manufacturing
components within our ventilators. Their support in this manufacturing process
will aid us to further increase our ventilator supply.

with 70% localised components, including the core and other complex components.
