"At this point in the year, since January, we have collected P106 billion, which is ahead of target, indicating that we are on the right track," stated BOC Deputy Commissioner Michael Fermin during the Saturday News Forum in Quezon City.


Fermin emphasized, "We have been efficiently collecting revenues, especially with the higher target set by the DBCC for this year."



The DBCC (Development Budget Coordination Committee) is the inter-agency body under the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) responsible for setting the government’s macroeconomic assumptions.


Fermin highlighted the agency’s ongoing efforts, including border control and protection, trade facilitation, and filing cases against erring individuals and companies.

"More than 50 percent of the seizures are counterfeit goods, followed by illegal drugs worth P7 billion, and agricultural products and other general merchandise," Fermin added.

Regarding trade facilitation, aligned with President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.'s directive for full digitalization, Fermin mentioned that the BOC has complied with 97 percent of the bureau’s core processes.
