Gov’t agencies sign agreement on enhanced trade efficiency

The Bureau of Customs (BOC) signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Strategic Trade Management Office (STMO), Authority of the Freeport of Area Bataan (AFAB), Clark Development Corporation (CDC), Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) and Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) to increase the overall efficiency of the trade environment in the country.

In a statement, the BOC said it signed a cooperation agreement with the agencies on December 15. The agreement is in consonance with Republic Act No. 10697, which authorized the establishment of STMO to serve as the executive and technical agency of the national government for the establishment of the management systems for the trade in strategic goods.
