Philippines: Anti-smuggling task force to be set up in Benguet

The municipal government is pushing for the creation of a Benguet anti-smuggling task force to be deployed in the Bureau of Customs. This unit should help monitor the entry of smuggled vegetables.

Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan said it is high time for the provincial government to hire dedicated personnel who will comprise the Benguet anti-smuggling task force to ensure no smuggled vegetables will enter the country that can cause sudden drop in prices of locally grown crops.

Palangdan suggested that members of the task force will be assigned in different ports where Bureau of Customs (BoC) personnel are located to help them monitor vegetable and other agricultural crops smuggling that directly compete with locally produced ones.
