President Rodrigo R. Duterte's pivot to China has led to friendlier relations and encouraged more Chinese tourists to visit the Philippines and Chinese workers to work here.

DFA Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. issued the ban after recurrent sightings of Chinese survey vessels in the Philippines' exclusive economic zone (EEZ) without the government's permission.

The Chinese Embassy in Manila earlier asked the government to punish casinos and Philippine offshore gaming operations that illegally hire Chinese workers, blaming them for aiding crimes such as money-laundering. The Defence chief, however, admitted that the Philippine military has yet to confirm the presence of Chinese survey ships in the country's EEZ.

Lorenzana told news channel ANC that like other countries conducting research, or moving warships near its coastline, China should have informed the Philippines about it.

"We are going to engage with them and say any cigarette making machine needs prior government approval so if you know that this is a cigarette making machine please don't give it an export permit", Dominguez added.

China's embassy in Manila did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
