In a televised briefing from Malacañang on Monday, President Duterte slammed the “profit, profit, profit” mindset of Western firms. According to President Duterte, the “profit, profit, profit” mindset was the one thing that was wrong with Western firms.

With this, President Duterte said that the government would give preference to China and Russia, provided, that the COVID-19 vaccine from these countries was as good as any other COVID-19 vaccine in the market.

Kung sabihin mo na, sige wala pa ‘yung vaccine, there is nothing with finality and you want us to make the reservation by depositing money, you must be crazy”, President Duterte said.
