I'm bored of constantly repeating it, particularly to the same person.

Most of the big manufacturers have licenced other companies to produce their vaccines.

Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna have done this for free for the duration of the pandemic, reserving the right to charge for production once they consider the pandemic is over. 

AZ haven't "given" production rights to anyone - they've sold them under licence.

Jason I'm not fully informed but I heard that Korea has invested 2billion$US to attempt to enter the worlds top 5 as a vaccine producer. Even a nation as well structured as the US cannot produce the required volume on its own. But good news about Siam Bioscience getting the green light all the same.

Well I'm confused. This is the plant that was supposed to be producing back in June?  The one that has been conspicuous because nothing is said about it, or can be said, because of an official news blackout due to, well legal reasons here in Thailand.  

I would make a comment but, my attorney advises me not to.
