Australia values the key role the business community plays in advancing the trade and investment interests of both the Philippines and Australia, and in driving the economic development of both countries. We proudly support Australia-affiliated companies like PrimeBMD, who, in the spirit of mateship and bayanihan, has also provided infrastructure support to the Philippine Government integral to the country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prime BMD was among the first private sector groups to assist the national government in its COVID response efforts. In 2020, Prime BMD transformed several facilities into field hospitals and converted event centers and medical facilities into mega swabbing centers in support of the government’s detection and isolation strategies. Prime BMD also built the largest COVID quarantine facility in the capital.
In August 2021, Prime BMD completed the mega vaccination site at Nayong Pilipino in Paranaque City that offers drive-thru vaccination booths and ambulatory courts for walk-ins. The vaccination site has the capacity to administer 15,000 jabs per day.
