Lopez has already suspended five mining companies since she assumed office two weeks ago. The mining operations in Zambales are known to be exporting to the Chinese mainland.
“If they don’t get their act together, I’ll tell them to go home,” she told DZMM.

Lopez also looked into the destruction of corals by the Chinese in the disputed sea area.
She said that the Chinese culture was “essentially very spiritual” but they are now more focused on making profit.
“They’ve become very materialistic. All the think of is money and they’re bullies, and it’s not good at all,” she added.
This week, a UN-backed court ruled that the Philippines has the right to exploit resources in the South China Sea waters but it was not acknowledged by China, as for them it is baseless. | ASCS - FNPH
