Customs-NAIA to Intensify Their Campaign to Stop Smuggling Activities
The Bureau of Customs-NAIA (BOC-NAIA) will intensify their campaign against smuggling by seminars to improve their security.
The bureau will start the year with a series of seminars to improve vigilance and knowledge on globally accepted practices for effective border security. The “2021 Smuggling Prevention Techniques,” the virtual seminar series started last January 19.
According to the article of Manila Bulletin, it talks about the “Profiling and Baggage Search Techniques in Passenger Area,” followed by the “Intensified Border Protection Techniques in Warehouses” on January 21.
The seminars will be attended by more than 100 participants. This will continue throughout the year to discuss various border protection topics.
Based on the article, the series of virtual seminars are part of BOC-NAIA’s protection plans and initiatives to complement its 2020 achievements, said Collector Carmelita Talusan.
Last year’s efforts resulted in the blocking and seizure of illegal goods with an estimated total value of P1.79 billion. This year’s campaign began with the arrest of ecstasy claimants on January 8; and Kush hi-grade marijuana the next day.
