Chapter 279 Biting Back at the Questioner
After the reporter asked this, everyone’s eyes turned to Qin Haodong.
There was a strange phenomenon in Huaxia. Many good things were preferentially supplied abroad. Not only was the price cheaper than domestic goods, but the quality was also much better. They did not know whether Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company would do that.
The patients with leukemia were even more concerned about this. After all, Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company’s production capacity was not clear. If supply priority was given to foreign countries, many patients in Huaxia might not be able to wait for this drug to enter the market.
Qin Haodong said, “I would like to emphasize two points on this issue. First, the reason I developed the Blood Revival Oral Liquid and established Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company is for the 4 million compatriots with leukemia in our country. The drugs I produce will be sold all over the world as long as supplies are ensured in our country.
Secondly, after the production of the Blood Revival Oral Liquid, the domestic and foreign prices will be totally different. The price abroad will be 100 times higher than the domestic price.”
After getting this answer, everyone got excited. No one had thought that the answer given by Qin Haodong would be so awesome. No other company had ever done this. The companies who sold their drugs at the same price at home and abroad were considered good companies.
“Doctor Qin is such a great man!”
“Doctor Qin, we love you. You are our great benefactor…”
Many leukemia patients were so excited that they shouted Qin Haodong’s name. Some of them had tears in their eyes. They’d had enough high-price drugs abroad over the years before finally getting an enterprise with a conscience.
The reporters, who had finally gotten what they wanted, took photos with the cameras in their hands ceaselessly.
Suddenly, someone said in a cold voice, “Mr. Qin, I don’t think it’s right for you to do so.”
Instantly, the meeting room became quiet. The speaker was a bearded foreigner. There were too many people at the press conference, so nobody had noticed him in the corner.
The bearded man said, “Doctor Qin, I am Enrique, a reporter from M Country’s Health Daily. I think that since you are a doctor, you should treat patients from Huaxia and other countries equally. You should not raise the price of the drugs sold abroad a hundred times compared to the price in Huaxia.”
Qin Haodong looked at the foreigner and said, “Mr. Enrique, let me ask you a question first. How much is Baikangsiding, a famous drug for leukemia, in M Country? How much is it in our country?”
“Well…” Enrique immediately went from being angry to being embarrassed. Eventually, he said, “The price of Baikangsiding in Huaxia is 24,000 to 30,000 yuan, while in M Country it is about 100 dollars.”
Although many people knew this secret, when Enrique uttered it, there was still an uproar in the conference room. Some leukemia patients even began to complain about this.
Qin Haodong waved his hand and motioned for everyone not to get upset. Then, he told Enrique, “Mr. Enrique, have you ever suggested in M country that patients in our country should be treated equally? Have you ever suggested to the producer to lower the price of medicine in Huaxia?”
Enrique blushed. He was too embarrassed to say anything.
Qin Haodong then said, “According to an old saying in our country, one should not impose on others what he himself does not desire to do. The price of drugs sold to our country is always higher than it is in your country, so you have no right to ask us to treat you equally.
We inherited traditional Chinese medicine from our ancestors. It belongs to each of us, so it is normal for us to buy the drug at a low price. However, you do not meet that qualification.”
“Doctor Qin is right. Why do they sell us drugs at a high price? We can sell them our drugs at a high price too…”
“That’s right. Traditional Chinese medicine belongs to each of us…”
“Doctor Qin, we support you. It would be even better to raise the price of drugs sold abroad by 200 times or 300 times…”
Everyone in the conference room was excited. Meanwhile, Enrique, who was embarrassed, turned away from the room.
He had originally been traveling, but he had happened to attend the press conference and give his suggestion. In his opinion, Huaxia people always kept up appearances and spoke very euphemistically. He had not expected Qin Haodong to bite back.
Meanwhile, in the general manager’s office at the Wilson Jiangnan Branch, Huang Weili was being scolded by Davis.
“How stupid are you? What did you send me? Our laboratory has studied this for so many days and spent a lot of manpower, material resources and money. However, there is no result. What you sent is only water and plant fibers. How can leukemia be cured by them?
You have to give me a reasonable explanation today, or you’ll be fired!”
Davis scolded Huang Weili on the huge electronic screen. If they had been face-to-face, his saliva might have sprayed Huang Weili’s face.
Huang Weili was so frightened that he began to sweat. He quickly explained, “Don’t be angry, Mr. Davis. Listen to my explanation. I promise this must be Blood Revival Oral Liquid, which can cure leukemia thoroughly.”
“What’s your promise good for? We are medicine producers. I need evidence. Do you understand?”
Davis was still very angry. He had invested a lot of money and manpower in the Blood Revival Oral Liquid these days, but the final verdict of the laboratory was that the liquid had no effect.
“Evidence?” Huang Weili thought quickly and said, “I sent people to follow up on the 100 patients who took the Blood Revival Oral Liquid during the past two days. They have really been cured. No one is taking any medicine anymore. Some of them have gone to work, and some of them appeared in the bathroom center.
You know that leukemia patients are not allowed to have a sex life, but they have been cured. They have found many beautiful ladies. Some of them have been caught by the police. If you need any information about this, I can pass it on to you right now.”
Upon hearing Huang Weili’s words, Davis calmed down. He touched his head and said, “Are you sure?”
Huang Weili, who was about to cry, said, “Boss, would I dare play such a joke on you?”
“You can’t convince me just by saying these things. You have to provide other evidence, or you’ll be fired!”
Huang Weili thought about it and immediately said, “Mr. Davis, Lin’s Group and Qin Haodong held a public press conference just an hour ago. Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company was formally established and will start production soon. There is only one product it can produce. It is the Blood Revival Oral Liquid.
This fully proves that Blood Revival Oral Liquid is effective. Otherwise, Lin’s Group would never invest so much money in it.”
“Are they going to start production?” Davis thought for a moment and then asked, “Are you sure about that? How much has Lin’s Group invested?”
“Yes, I am. I’ve asked someone to inquire about it. The board of directors convened and voted to invest in Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company. The investment is about 2.5 billion yuan.
2.5 billion is a lot of money. If Lin’s Group had no sufficient reason, it would never invest so much money!”
Huang Weili was now trying to prove the effect of the Blood Revival Oral Liquid to keep his job. He bitterly regretted sending the Blood Revival Oral Liquid to Wilson’s headquarters.
Davis asked, “Press conference? Is this a hype event organized by Lin’s Group?”
Compared to that, he believed in the data given by his laboratory more than he believed in the press conference.
Huang Weili said, “It’s possible. Lin’s Group was originally involved in the jewellery industry. If this is a hype event, it will not hype traditional Chinese medicine.
Moreover, according to reliable information, the first capital of Lin’s Group has been put in place. It is prepared to buy a Chinese medicine company that went bankrupt two years ago at the price of 500 million yuan. It is said that a contract will be signed soon.”
After hearing Huang Weili’s words, Davis now believed that the Blood Revival Oral Liquid was real. However, he still wondered and asked, “In that case, why did our laboratory find nothing?”
Huang Weili resisted the impulse to swear that the laboratory’s workers were all fools and said, “Mr. Davis, Chinese medicine is really amazing. It may have gone beyond the lab’s research ability.
For example, a few days ago, Qin Haodong cured Old Maldini without surgery. Although this is known all over the world by now, it cannot be explained by science.”
“You’re right.” Davis raised his head, looked at Huang Weili and said, “However, I remember you saying more than once that Chinese medicine is a useless pseudoscience.”
“Well…” Huang Weili said, looking embarrassed, “At the time, I did think so. I studied western medicine when I was young. It’s normal to have this idea. However, it turns out that I was wrong. Chinese medicine is a very amazing subject.”
Davis did not say anything else. He paced back and forth in the room. After a long time, he turned around and said, “Huang, I’m going to assign you a task.”
“Mr. Davis, I’ll definitely do my best to follow your orders.”
Huang Weili was delighted, as he had been really afraid of being fired. The fact that Davis wanted to give him a task was really good.
“You will go find Qin Haodong and get his formula, no matter how much it costs. The leukemia formula must be under the Wilson Company’s control. Otherwise, we will really go bankrupt.”
Huang Weili said with an embarrassed expression, “This… Mr. Davis, I’m afraid this is very difficult. Qin Haodong has already cooperated with Lin’s Group and will start producing the medicine soon.”
Davis said in a cold voice, “Stop speaking nonsense! You have to stop him. If you can’t do that, then you can leave my company. You must know that there are many people waiting in line for your position!”
Huang Weili was so frightened that he quickly said, “Don’t worry, Mr. Davis. I will do a good job!”
After the press conference, Qin Haodong returned to the infirmary. As soon as he sat down on his chair, the door was opened and Huang Weili came in.
Qin Haodong looked at him and said with a smile, “Hello, Manager Huang. How are you doing? Are you sick? Even if you are sick, I can’t help you. The infirmary is only meant for company staff.”
“Doctor Qin, you are so humorous. I didn’t come to see a doctor. I’m here to talk to you about a potential cooperation,” Huang Weili said.
Qin Haodong said, “Manager Huang, I can’t think of anything I could cooperate with you on.”
Huang Weili said directly, “Doctor Qin, I’m not going to beat around the bush. I’m here mainly on behalf of the Wilson Company to talk to you about cooperating on the development of the Blood Revival Oral Liquid.”
“Cooperating?” Qin Haodong laughed playfully and said, “It’s rare for the Wilson Company to cooperate with others like this. However, you’re late. I’m already cooperating with Lin’s Group. Our products will be launched in a few days.”
