PIA Press Release

Customs bureau exceeds target in January

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (27 February) -- New district collector for Davao Atty. Anju Nereo Castigador expects to repeat last year's feat with the revenue performance shown by the district last January 2010.

"BOC exceeded target by 35 percent in January and it has met collection target for February as early as two weeks ago," he said in a press conference at the Philippine Information Agency XI office yesterday (February 25).

Castigador is bent to surpass the exceptional revenue collection performance made in 2009. Last year, it collected its assigned target of P2 billion and even made a surplus of P748 million.

The Port of Davao ranked second nationwide in terms of collection performance, second to Aparri, Cagayan. Among the Billionaire Ports like the Manila International Container Port with at least P1 billion target, Davao Port ranked number one.

Recently, Port of Davao implemented the examination of shipments using the X-Ray facility of the BOC. The use of x-ray as an alternate for manual physical examination lessened human intervention and ensured integrity of shipments and prompt delivery.

The district collector subjected all empty containers entering the port to mandatory x-ray examination to be held at the PPA Designated Area, Sasa Wharf.

"This is to prevent the recurrence of the discovery of the controversial cocaine and the possible entry of other contrabands," he said.

The Port of Davao also requested from the Commissioner of Customs the deployment of additional mobile x-ray machines to be stationed in the same area to further tighten border security. (PIA XI) [top]
