- His term as special envoy will last for six months
President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed radio broadcaster and columnist Ramon Tulfo to be special envoy to China. KAMI learned from GMA News that Tulfo was the one who raised this to Duterte instead of running as a senator in 2019 polls.
According to the signed agreement, Tulfo’s term in the Cabinet position will last for six months. For Tulfo, he said that he just wants to help the people and that he would like to continue his program “Isumbong Mo Kay Tulfo” if ever.
“As special envoy to China, which pays only P1 per year, I could retain my public service program—Isumbong mo kay Tulfo—on dzRP, my bread and butter. Helping people is my passion,” Tulfo said, as reported by GMA News.
“This means millions of jobs for our rural folk and the transfer of agricultural and aquatic technology. I could facilitate applications and issuance of permits to Chinese investors,” he added.
Aside from Tulfo, PTV-4 news operations head, Raquel Tobias was also appointed as Undersecretary for Mass Media of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) as reported by Manila Bulletin. On the other hand, Presidential peace adviser Jesus Dureza was appointed as special envoy to the European Union.
Mon Tulfo is the brother of Ben, Erwin and Raffy Tulfo, all known radio broadcasters in the Philippines. Mon was involved in a controversy involving the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) where he posted a video on social media that the doctor allegedly refused to give the minor a first aid treatment.
