Bam on the Sevilla Resignation

"The government lost an outstanding public servant with the resignation of Bureau of Customs Commissioner John Phillip P. Sevilla.

His resignation is unfortunate since we are seeing the fruits of the reforms that he started within the agency, especially against smuggling and collection efficiency.

It is imperative that the next commissioner will continue the reforms initiated by Commissioner Sevilla.

Let us fast track the passage of the Customs and Tariff Modernization Act to modernize and systematize the processes, making it more efficient and transparent."
