China vows to prioritize PH once vaccine development succeeds




China also watched and listened to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s speech in his fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA).


An assurance that is most welcomed, as Chinese Foreign Ministry assured that Beijing will prioritize the Philippines once it succeeds with the vaccine development for coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

"Since the outbreak of Covid-19, China and the Philippines have been standing together with mutual assistance, turning anti-epidemic cooperation into a new highlight in bilateral relations. The Philippines is a friendly close neighbor and we will give priority to its needs once we succeed in developing a vaccine," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said in a press conference in Beijing.

The statement comes after Duterte in his SONA address said he personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to allow Manila to be the first nation to receive its vaccine once it passed all clinical trials.

Aside from Beijing, the country is also in talks with other international firms making a vaccine against COVID-19 such as US-based Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Moderna.
