Ceza eyes reexport of some 600 used cars

By |


BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya—The Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (Ceza) is considering exporting used vehicles imported into the special economic zone in Sta. Ana town once the government clamps down on their resale in the country.

Ceza administrator Jose Mari Ponce said the agency was considering exporting to either Africa or Bangladesh some 600 vehicles that arrived in the country after the Supreme Court decision on Jan. 7 that upheld the validity of Executive Order No. 156.

The executive order, issued by then President Macapagal-Arroyo in 2002, prohibits the importation of used vehicles into the country, with some exceptions.

“We are trying to determine if there is a market in those areas because if this ban becomes permanent, our best option is to have the vehicles reexported,” Ponce said.

He said Ceza would abide by the ruling of the Supreme Court, denying accusations that the continued arrival of shiploads of used cars in the Cagayan Special Economic Zone and Freeport (CSEZFP) was an act of defiance.

“So if the [Bureau of] Customs is now telling its people to stop [processing the latest shipment of used cars], then that is not our concern because ours is a free port, and we are not violating any laws as long as these vehicles stay within the secured perimeter,” Ponce said.

On Thursday, Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon ordered its district office in Aparri, Cagayan, which covers the CSEZFP, to stop the processing of the shipment of 200 used vehicles from South Korea that arrived there on Feb. 11.

Biazon said this was a show of respect for the Supreme Court ruling, which, according to him, the agency will fully enforce once it becomes final and executory.

A shipment of about 400 vehicles from Japan is expected to arrive at Port Irene, CSEZFP’s main port, on Thursday, Ceza officials earlier said.

Avert huge losses

“Reexporting is one option that [used car traders] can resort to avert huge losses. Otherwise, if this industry is really shut down, those vehicles will eventually turn into nothing but junk,” said Ponce, a relative of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, who was behind the creation of the special zone and free port through the passage of a law.

But even as used-car traders, mainly Forerunner Multi Sources Inc., the petitioner in the recently decided case, were seeking other legal remedies to avert the folding up of their multimillion-peso industry, Ceza has begun looking at alternatives, said Ponce.

Alternative livelihood

“We are now also looking at the worst-case scenario that about 1,000 people will be left jobless if this industry will stop. So we are trying to look for alternative livelihood for them,” he added.

The Automotive Rebuilders Industry of Cagayan (Aric) was not looking at the option of reexporting the imported vehicles.

“It will never lead to that point. We are confident that [the used-car importation] at Ceza will not be stopped because, as we have already stated, this is allowed by Executive Order No. 418, and the [Jan. 7] Supreme Court ruling has not yet decided on the validity of EO 156,” said Aric president Jaime Vicente.

Conflicting orders

EO 418 was issued in 2005 by Arroyo and modifies tariff rates for used imported vehicles.

“So we have here two conflicting orders—one that [implicitly] allows and one that prohibits. If [the government] implements one, it renders the other inoperable,” he said.

Vicente said Aric’s operations should not be hampered by the recent Supreme Court decision because it did not decide the main issue of the case, but only the validity of the issuance of an injunction.

“The latter order (EO 418) has already been declared constitutional by the Supreme Court with finality; the other (EO 156) is still pending. So which one should prevail?” he told the Inquirer by telephone on Monday.

    people will be left jobless if this industry will stop. So we are trying
    to look for alternative livelihood for them,” he added.

    1000 people working on the industry of importing cars? That’s definitely bloated figure, mas maapektuhan lng dyn ay ung mayamang investors. Mas malaki ang mawawala sa Pinas pag nag patuloy ito dahil libu-libo ang nag tratrabaho sa assembly plant sa Laguna na pwedeng mawalan ng trabaho.

    Gayahin natin ung Thailand na halos sa kanila na ang manufacturing at assembly ng mga kotse, hindi imported. Ganid lang sa pera ung importer ng used cars kaya sinasankalan ung mga trabahador nila na wala pa sa basic pay ang bininigay.

    Matuto tayong gumawa, hindi mag import, ito ang sagot sa kahirapan, trabaho sa manufacturing.

    Juan Ponce Enrile should go back to making matches. That’s how he got rich to begin with. At least that’s what he claims. Sya nga pala, kalbo na ang gubat at wala ng puno.

    Now is the time for PNoy and his administration to push JPE off the cliff. After JPE, Jackie is a lot easier to handle if not exterminate. PNoy must act decisively now.

  • Hey_Dudes

    For those of you not familiar with the Philippines of the 1960’s, here are some refreshers.  Prior to the construction of North Diversion road (now called something else), assembly plants were already in place along Valenzuela.  The country was already assembling cars made by American Motors Corp. starting with the American line, Ambassador line, Rambler station wagons.  Ford was assembling cars and trucks along Sucat while International Harvester McLeod was into assembling of RDF, Loadstars and Carry-All trucks in Pasig.  Most USA  heavy equipment manufacturers were represented by firms like Honiron Philippines, Air Mac Philippines, Asia Industries etc. etc.

    Martial law together with extreme labor militancy killed all these industries.  I doubt if the country will reach the heights achieved during the good old days.  Without a doubt, with the mediocre government and policies coming down the pipelines administered by jokers is making what our country is today – like a junkyard contented  in assembling tricycles.

  • NoWorryBHappy

    Alternative livelihood ?
    Jose Mari Ponce and Aric president Jaime Vicente call it importation.
    Duh ! It is SMUGGLING !!! Employing 1,000 people ? Only 100. These 100 include the
     investors, corrupt politicians who collect kickbacks and partner police and military officials who
    are in the mafia payroll. Smuggling of used cars must be stopped now so that legitimate car
    manufacturing will thrive.

    ONLY 1000 PEOPLE (IF THE NUMBER IS TRUE) WILL BE AFFECTED BUT IT WILL SAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE FROM THE DANGER OF CONVERTED VEHICLES AND POLLUTION FROM THOSE JUNKS.

      • huseng_batute

         Ah.

        I think its partly because of the mentality of the Filipino consumer.  Ang mga Pinoy kasi up-front price ang pinaka-unang determining factor sa pagbili ng produkto.  Quality of the product is almost never considered.
        Basta pwede na at mura, go!

        Take for instance yung pandesal.  The price has remained relativelystable, pero padami nang padami ang hangin sa loob.

        Sa powertools mas mabenta yung mga 2nd-hand surplus from Australia versus sa brand-new quality products ng Bosch.  Pero in the long run mas mahal yung 2nd hand kasi nasisira agad.

        How does that translate to locally made cars?  Of course the Filpino car has to first conquer the local market before you can sell to other countries.   Building a Filipino car does not happen overnight.  It will take years of research and development.  And millions, perhaps even billions, in investement.

        Walang gustong mag-invest sa ganyang venture kasi ang consumers mas pipiliin pa rin yung mas murang imports na dumadaan sa Port Irene.

        This is true for other industries as well, not just automotive.

        There is no silver bullet that can solve this.  Intertwined ang effects ng ingrained culture natin, the infrastructure, the business climate, the role of government.

        I don’t think this can be solved in our generation.   Kaya ako I just do my part.  I’m teaching my son to not just be satisfied by a passing grade.  Dapat best effort palagi.

      • $20174498

        I was just thinking why South Korea with 49 million populations were able to succeed in these type of business. Isn’t it that during the sixties, Philippines was in a stable economy compared to our neighboring countries in the southeast asian regions? Now, we are way behind. Shall we say coz by unabated corruption or by our elder leaders?

      • huseng_batute

        Its very easy to blame it on corruption, but we have to go beyond that. 

        “We are in this mess because of our corrupt leaders.  So therefore the solution is for our leaders to stop being corrupt.”  –>  This I think is the usual mindset of Filipinos.  Kasalanan ng iba, hindi ako.  Wala akong dapat baguhin kasi hindi naman ako ang may kasalanan.

        To me corruption is only a symptom of a bigger problem.  The problem is our culture.  The culture of padrino, “pwede na ‘yan”, “bayaan mo na yan para wala nang gulo”….

        There won’t be corruption if the people themselves don’t allow it.   Sa renewel pa lang ng lisensya sa LTO makikita mo na yan.  Ang unang hahanapin yung fixer na may koneksyon sa loob para hindi na mag-hintay sa pila. 

        Mga pasaherong tamad maglakad papunta dun sa tamang sakayan at babaan.  Kaya tuloy yung mga jeep doon ginagawang terminal na yung kanto.  At para hindi hulihin may regular na kotong sa pulis.

        One step towards stopping corruption is to expect better from our leaders. 

        But before we can do that we should first expect better from ourselves.

    this importion of second hand cars is killing whatever car industry Philippines trying to create. it is counter productive because only only few businessmen profited from sale of second hand car whereas with a new car many will be benifited from workers metal industry, electrical harness, banks, transport and other.

    Senator Enrile gives out public money to senators

    Enrile gave a whopping bonus of 1.6 million pesos each to 18 senators last Christmas. It is interesting to note that rather than hand over unused funds back to the treasury, Enrile saw it fit to distribute the so-called “savings” to Senate employees as a personal gift. According to the same report, even drivers and security personnel in the senate got bonuses ranging from 50,000.00 to 120,000.00 pesos.

    There are no foreign locators engaged in manufacturing goods for export in CEZA.  Only local businessmen connected with the powerful clan in Cagayan uses the port for importation of used-vehicles. The activity is detrimental to the automotive industry as only the financiers and corrupt BOC officials benefited from the importation of used-vehicles.

    The importations does not belong to CEZA or Ponce but why are they worried about the re-exportation of those vehicles? Surely, those “importers” must have unusually close relations with CEZA or Ponce to have him as their spokesman.  

    The smuggling may have created 1000 jobs but it may have caused more to be lost in all the other PEZA zones including the pulling out of certain car assemblers from this country.

    During the Arroyo administration, luxury cars were destroyed (Aug 2007). Smugglers were furious. They managed to hit back Arroyo for it.

    Llamas loves to buy PIRATED OPTICAL DISCS, which is tantamount to patronizing smuggled products (even if he managed to show the KKK badge and reasoned to Noynoy that it’s only a small scale to what he contributed to that brainlessness of the latter).

    If Noynoy would issue a new EO, I’m certain that the objective is to quench his vindictiveness/hatefulness to the previous admin…and to show that his is better off than the former…and that the “Tuwad Na Daan” is better than having higher IQ and working neurons of a brain.

  • jaws378

    It seems that there is a misconception on the nature of the 2nd hand car business passing through CEZA. How can there be smuggling when before an imported car, whether brand new or 2nd hand, is registered by the LTO, tariff duties must first be paid. In fact for those who have purchased 2nd hand cars which passed through CEZA, the certificate of registration issued by the LTO is accompanied by a certification and official receipt issued by the Bureau of Customs that the tariff/taxes have been paid. Of course, being 2nd hand, the tariff duties are not that much compared with those imposed on brand new cars and this is the reason why their prices are cheap. 

    Executive Order 156 was issued not because of the smuggling of 2nd hand cars passing through the Subic Freeport, but due to the fact that the market of locally assembled cars are reduced due to the competition of 2nd hand cars which are sold at much lower prices than the locally assembled cars.

       If it is barred entry, yet, it is entered, it is SMUGGLED.

    Why re-export?  Junk them, send them to the crusher and sell them as scrap metal. this is the only way these smuglers will learn. Hit them hard in their pockets.

    DON’T VOTE for the 3 crocs / crooks Enrile, Binay and Estrada. Nothing will appease their greed and their pursuit of power. Nothing…H’wag magpapaloko sa kanilang Daang Maganda. Ito ay Daang Madumi at Madilim.

    kung illegal ang importation ng used car e di dapat kumpiskahin ang mga sasakyang ito.. bakit papahintulutang ire-export daw ng CEZA…mukhang kamag-anak pa ni senator Juan PONCE Enrile ang Administrator na si Jose Mari PONCE…ang swerte nila ano?
