A MODERNIZED and bigger Sasa wharf was highlighted in the recent meeting between the Bureau of Customs (BOC) Port of Davao and Globalport Terminals Incorporated.
The meeting, held on Nov. 12 in Sasa, was part of the Bureau’s efforts in line with President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s eight-point socioeconomic strategy of boosting investments and improving infrastructure.
In line with BOC Commissioner Yogi Filemon L. Ruiz’s directive to maximize efforts on trade facilitation and revenue collection, the BOC- Davao highlighted its progress, particularly the growth in its collection targets since 2016.
The significant increase indicated how robust the local economy is in the Davao Region, clearly aligned with Gobalport’s expansion project.
The BOC-Davao also shared its vision to make the region a major player in international trade.
Globalport, on the other hand, discussed its plans which include berthing management, container terminal management, passenger terminal management, stevedoring services, and reefer facilities and services.
Both parties agreed to collaborate in the implementation of the Sasa modernization project and combine efforts to increase opportunities for the Davao Region’s economic development.
