Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion revealed that over 200 Philippine companies have “expressed their pledge and interest” in buying the second batch of COVID-19 vaccines from British company AstraZeneca. AstraZeneca reports a 70% effectivity rate against COVID-19.
Some of these private firms include Ayala Corporation, Palawan Pawnshop, Okada Manila, Uratex Philippines, and Century Pacific Food.
In a statement, Concepcion said, “This only means that the business community is very serious in ensuring that our economy will remain open while slowly ending this war.”
“The more businesses involved in this project, the faster the ecosystem will be revived, thus, stimulating exchange. It is one answer to the question of how we get money flowing again – it will stop the bleeding,” Concepcion added.
