Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon is confident that the Bureau of Customs will be able to reach its 300 Billion pesos target in collection for this year.
According to the Commissioner, they already have 25.57 Billion pesos of cash collection last month while 224.46 Billion pesos in total revenue collection.
This is five percent higher than what the agency achieved the same month last year.
However, Biazon admitted that their collection for the month of September was sluggish because of the recent reshuffling with the agency’s official and employees. But the whole collections hasn’t been affected by it. (Alyza Joy Narvaez)
