Subic has new Customs collector

By Malou Dungog, MT Central Luzon Bureau

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT: Freeport officials welcomed on Tuesday Andres Salvacion Jr. as the new Customs collector of the Port of Subic, replacing district collector Marietta Zamoranos, who was promoted to the Manila International Container Port after a six-month stint.

Salvacion’s appointment was welcomed by Zamoranos and other Subic officials who know him as the deputy collector for assessment here until he was promoted to district collector of the Port of Clark six months ago.

Zamoranos, who was assigned MICP deputy collector for operation, said in her farewell message that she was happy that Salvacion was the one chosen to succeed her.

“This is my sixth turn-over,” said Zamoranos, who endeared herself to port officials and Subic-Olongapo residents during her assignment as district collector. “In leaving, there will be sadness and happiness. I want it to be happy because I am six months wiser and my reassignment at MICP a bigger career opportunity.”

During her six-month stay here, Zamoranos supported the antismuggling campaign waged by Task Force Subic, headed by retired general Jose Calimlim.

Salvacion, on his part, thanked Zamoranos and welcomed his return to the free port.

“If you remember, once upon a time I said I will be the next McArthur, now I have returned,” Salvacion said. “Not everyone is given the opportunity to become a district collector. There are only 10 ports of entry in the Philippines. Out of the 8,000 Bureau of Customs employees who want to get the position, there are only 14 district collectors.

“As the new district collector, rest assured that I will give whatever benefits due to you. And I will do my best to serve Port of Subic,” he said.

Zamoranos is faced with the challenge of increasing customs collection from the Port of Subic, which is suffering a shortfall in its monthly collection target because of the government clampdown on used-motor vehicle importation.
