The Bureau of Customs has received 36 brand new passenger vans from the Philippine International Trading Corp.
Undersecretary Dave Almarinez, president and CEO of PITC, handed over the keys to the BOC led by Customs Commissioner Rey Leonardo Guerrero during the bureau’s celebration of its 118th Founding Anniversary last Feb. 6.
The event started with the invocation of Lt. Aries Sualog, PSG Chaplain Service, followed by welcome remarks from Donato San Juan, deputy customs commissioner.
The second part of the program at the Office of the Commissioner saw the blessing of the 36 vans and turnover of symbolic keys to all BOC district collectors receiving the vehicles.
“This is part of the good relationship between BOC and PITC, and we really support each other as we act as the procurement agent of the government,” Almarinez said.
“The PITC believes the donation is timely as it helps strengthen the performance of the BOC, and we thank them for trusting us to meet their need as we both strive to serve the public better,” he added.
In response, Guerrero said: “We are thankful to Usec. Dave Almarinez and the Office of PITC for the early action for this request as our procurement requirement.” Roy Tomandao
