Dumaguete Customs 2017 Target Collection
According to Dumaguete Customs Collector Fe Lluelyn Ganir Toring, the office has collected more than PHP 1.369 Billion pesos as of September 14, 2017 (exceeding the PHP 1.303 Billion target for 2017). By September 15, 2017, alone, the excess collection was noted as PHP 66.347 Million.
Petroleum and Fuel Company behind the success
Dumaguete City has sometimes been dubbed as the “City of Gasoline Station”. With 2, 500 tricycles and hundreds of cars and motorbike, Dumaguete City is expected to have a good supply of gasoline and petroleum products.
“There is a big demand for fuel and Filoil is responding quite well to it, being the major distributor here,” said Dumaguete Customs Collector Fe Lluelyn Ganir Toring.
Among the six regular huge importers, Filoil, DUCOMI, and Pryce Gas, among others has greatly contributed to the increase of revenue.
