Commentary: Textile smuggling

by Bapa Bedu

Koronadal, South Cotabato (18 April) -- Smuggling on land and on the high seas has been the business of some enterprising men and women here and abroad.

Government agencies are finalizing an agreement that aims to prevent the Philippines from being used as transshipment point for smuggled textiles and fake designer clothes destined for the United States. Under the agreement, the Bureau of Customs will ban the entry of unidentified textiles and clothes into Philippine ports, then furnish counterpart agencies with a monthly summary of released/seized/abandoned commodities.

According to Finance Secretary Teves, this agreement will protect exporters and the integrity of major suppliers of high-end clothing brands to the US market. The Agreement is expected to be signed in late April by various agencies, including Department of Trade and Industry, Bureau of Customs, Clark Development Corporation, Philippine Export Processing Zone and the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.

The protection to be accorded the Filipino exporters is but a great government move. (PIA 12) [top]
