NEDA Supports BOC Davao’s Logistics Hub Project

December 19, 2022

The National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) – Economic Development Committee (EDC) XI approved the recommendation of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) – Port of Davao action plan to create a Technical Working Group (TWG) for its logistics and investment hub project.

District Collector Erastus Sandino Austria presented the project during the NEDA-EDC XI 4th Quarter 2022 Regular Meeting on December 9.

The BOC-Port of Davao aims to get support and technical assistance from different concerned agencies in realizing the plan.

The Port also intends to strengthen the business environment of the Davao Region and improve its economic performance.

In his presentation, Austria highlighted BOC Davao’s jurisdiction at its airport and seaport facilities.

He also discussed the Port’s outstanding performance following the Seven-point Priority Agenda of Customs Commissioner Yogi Filemon Ruiz, specifically in digitalizing customs services.

The project also underscores President Ferdinand Marcos Jr’s 8-point economic agenda in creating more jobs through investment pursuits in the Region.

The EDC reviewed the Draft Regional Development Plan (RDP) 2023-2028 to improve its strategy framework towards revitalizing different industries and lessening the region’s poverty rate.

At the end of the session, the EDC recommended the BOC Davao be a part of their work.

The BOC Davao also plans to adopt the same project in Region XII and Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) ports.#
