The Philippines’ Department of Trade and Industry is looking to produce 20 million face masks in 2 months, which President Rodrigo Duterte wants to distribute for free to the country’s poorest of the poor families.

Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said the project would still go through bidding through the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).

“As we speak po, nag-uumpisa nang magdeliver ‘yung initial product. Pero siguro within 2 months hopefully makumpleto namin itong 20 million,” Lopez said.

President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday instructed the DTI to consolidate different micro, small and medium enterprises, as well as community organizations, for the production of face masks.
