Surprisingly, hundreds of businesses have expressed support for British drugmaker AstraZeneca to acquire the second batch of COVID-19 vaccines from the private sector. Joey Concepcion the presidential business advisor and founder of Go Negosyo shared in a statement that there was an impressive turnout for the purchasing of a second batch of COVID-19 vaccines, as more than 200 corporations showed interest in buying a second batch of COVID-19 vaccines.
For this reason, Ayala Corp. with 400,000 doses of vaccine, Palawan Pawnshop with 100,000 doses, Okada Manila with 40,000, Uratex Philippines with 21,000, Century Pacific Food Inc. and Unioil Petroleum Philippines Inc. with 20,000 doses, Golden Arches Production Corp. with 15,000 and Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. with 10,000 doses are among the companies that put orders.
Following the news of the purchase of a second batch of COVID-19 vaccines, industry organizations including the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, the British Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, the Entrepreneurs Organisation, the Philippine Franchise Association, the Association of Filipino Franchisers Inc., and the Federation of Filipino Franchisers Inc. all gathered.
While somehow they surprisingly predicted it, They were glad that more and more collaborators from the private sector are now taking part in this project, ending the fight against COVID-19. This just suggests that the corporate world is very concerned about ensuring that their economy remains open and that this ends painfully.
Earlier this month, Concepcion confirmed that AstraZeneca had accepted the private sector’s proposal for a second batch of donated COVID-19 vaccines. The basic cost for each dosage is 250 pesos which is equivalent to the first batch of sales.
Meanwhile, nder the agreement signed last month by Concepcion, along with more than 30 members of the private sector, and vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. and AstraZeneca Philippines country president Lotis Ramin, the private sector planned to still buy.
