The Bureau of Customs Port of Davao collected a total of P488,494,281.57 worth of customs taxes and duties for the month of August 2013.


It is 4 percent or P19,956,281.57, up from the agency’s target of the month, which was P468.53 million.

In the month, BOC Davao City ports have the highest cash collection totalling P428.89 million, which is 95.91 percent of the total collection.

BOC General Santos port followed with collection of P49.605 million, while and its Mati port collected P903,394.

The figures were as of August 30, 2013 towards noon.

BOC Davao OIC District Collector lawyer Edward James Dy Buco, in an interview, expressed confidence of the continuing target hits of BOC Davao Port for the next months ahead.

For the past five years, the BOC Port of Davao has consistently surpassed its assigned collection even as the entire Bureau of Customs and major ports in Metro Manila and other parts of the country failed to reach their target. In 2012 it collected P5.910 billion, which was ten percent over its assigned target collection of P5.378 billion. (Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte)
