Development of a Vaccine Manufacturing Facility
Given the current pandemic, the government and private entities recognize the urgent need to establish a local vaccine manufacturing facility in the country. This does not only ensure that necessary vaccines are readily available when needed since there is a guaranteed local source, but also enables the country to achieve self-sufficiency and less reliance on importation and external supply availability. With this, NDC currently has ongoing discussions with DOST, BOI and the private sector, among others, to explore potential collaborations in establishing fill and finish facilities, and eventually, bulk vaccine production plants.

Some potential locators in the zone are those in the field of copper wire rod casting facility, downstream copper industry (i.e. copper wire producers, major industrial concerns that need power) and port facilities (i.e. steel and copper-using industries).
