PRESIDENT Benigno S. Aquino III said on Wednesday that the government had already come out with an action plan to effectively curb smuggling in the country. 

In an interview in Roxas City, Capiz where he led the ceremonial groundbreaking of the Roxas City Airport Development Project, the Chief Executive said the newly-crafted measure would solve the problem on smuggling. 

"Pero batid ni Commissioner (Ruffy) Biazon na meron tayong mabigat na plano sa Customs... hindi pa lang napagkasunduan ‘yung timing kung kailan gagawin itong aksyon," the President said. 

The President assured the public that his administration remains committed to improve the services of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) by enhancing the anti-smuggling efforts. 

Once the action plan is implemented, the President noted that the various smuggling activities in the country will be solved. 

The President said the action plan is also aimed at cleansing the BOC of scalawags and misfits. 
He also cited the many initiatives being undertaken by the agency under the helm of Biazon. 

At present, the BOC is enhancing its efforts in revenue collection by curbing smuggling activities and to provide quality service to stakeholders with professionalism and integrity, facilitate trade in a secured manner and adapt measures compliant to international best practices and standards.
