Bangsamoro gov’t eyes P35M from port operations in BARMM


The Bangsamoro government is targeting to generate P35-million income from port operations in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) this year, an official said.

Regional Ports Management Authority
(RPMA)-BARMM General Manager Garib Abas said for the first quarter, “we have generated a total of P10 million worth of income which is a good start for the new management.”

This as the RPMA-BARMM held a two-day Midterm Management Conference on June 14-15 in Cotabato City.

The conference aimed to gather all ports managers, including the cargo handling operators and corporate accountants, from the island provinces of BARMM (Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi) to come up with a projected income for midterm operations of their different ports management offices.

During the two-day conference, a workshop on problem analysis was also conducted to give possible solutions for the identified issues and concerns of ports operations.
