PIA Press Release

BOC chief opens capacity building center in Davao

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (19 June) -- As a prize for good performance and high efficiency revenue collection, the Bureau of Customs in Davao opened and will soon be using the newly-constructed Customs Capacity Building Center.

Customs commissioner Napoleon Morales personally led the inauguration of the new facility to congratulate the men and women in BOC Davao for excellent performance that paved the way for construction of the said center.

"They have surpassed the collection target in 2009. This building is a lasting legacy of the hardship shown by our workers," Morales said.

For the first four months of the year, the Port of Davao exceeded its collection by 20 percent signaling renewed port activity following a relatively slow period during the global financial slowdown of 2009. All collection targets have been surpassed by BOC, even going beyond revenues collected for the first four months of 2009.

As the only BOC center that can accommodate big functions like seminars, the Davao Capacity Building Center will be the venue for all future trainings in Mindanao, instead of bringing the workers to Metro Manila.

BOC did not spend a single centavo for the construction of the building. Brought by the lateral attrition law that rewards good-performing government offices, the facility was given as a reward to BOC Davao.

Even with the transition of the new government, Morales expects continued resiliency on the part of BOC Davao.

"You are fortunate to have a handful of the finest here. Consistent performance is very possible," he told the BOC Davao employees. (PIA-XI) [top]
