Ambassador Huang Xilian, Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines, on Tuesday turned over to Philippine government authorities medical supplies that were airlifted by a special “goodwill flight” from China.
Huang said the goodwill flight “demonstrates the new era partnership of mutual support between China and the Philippines during the time of trying,” in his message during the turnover ceremonies at the airport.
“We are glad to see some of the medical supplies have been airlifted to Manila by this special flight. This ‘goodwill flight’ demonstrates the new era partnership of mutual support between China and the Philippines during the time of trying,” he said in his remarks.
China will continue to support and assist the Philippines in its fight against COVID-19, expressing optimism that the Philippines will be able to beat the pandemic.
“Facing the challenge of COVID-19 outbreak, China and the Philippines have been supporting and helping each other. We will continue to provide our support and assistance to the best of our ability to the Philippines. It is our firm belief that the dawn of victory will come at the earliest,” Huang said.
Huang also cited the visit of 12 Chinese medical experts who have gone to more than 10 front-line medical agencies, such as the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, Lung Center of the Philippines and Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center and shared with public health officials and professionals their experience and practice on COVID-19 prevention and control, diagnosis and treatment./Stacy Ang
