Mon Tulfo also revealed that as special envoy to China, will pay only P1.00 per year, but he could retain his public service program.

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,” said Tulfo, a brother of former Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo, who resigned last May over conflict of interest allegations.

According to Mon Tulfo, he has so many plans for the Philippines as the country's special envoy to China. He plans to bring in Chinese investors on agriculture and fisheries as he recalled his conversation with Chines government officials and businessmen in his visits to China.
