During the recent PortCalls Cargo Economics Conference, Bureau of Customs Deputy Commissioner for MIS and Technology Group Ma. Caridad Manarang informed participants about several new developments regarding e2m Customs and the National Single Window (NSW).

Some of the highlights are the following:

• On e2m Automated Export Declaration System (AEDS), the proposed CMO on supplemental guidelines on AEDS implementation has been submitted to BOC Commissioner Ruffy Biazon for approval.

• BOC’s direction is to have the PEZA Automated Export Documentation System (PEZA AEDS) fully integrate with e2m AEDS and not retain a separate system.

• Phase 2 of the National Single Window (NSW) system that will operationalize connectivity with the remaining 40 pilot government agencies will be implemented soon.

• The NSW system after 5 years (or 10 years) from now may potentially involve a scenario wherein the current e2m Value Added Service Provider (VASP) model may no longer have a role.

The next few weeks will be worth watching insofar as e2m and NSW are concerned.

Latest IDC Press Release: China, India Keep the Asia/Pacific PC Market Growing at Double-Digit Rates in 2011 Q3

Singapore and Hong Kong, October 20, 2011 — International Data Corporation preliminary results show that the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) PC market grew 6% sequentially and 13% year-on-year in 2011 Q3 to reach 31.9 million units, beating IDC’s initial forecasts by 2%. Consumers in China finally shrugged off media tablet distractions to return to PC buying this quarter, with enterprises too showing sustained demand there. Festivities and pent-up demand from the past two quarters helped propel the consumer market in India, though the enterprise space there did not share this enthusiasm, given the ongoing economic turmoil in the US and Western Europe.

“While it is great to see China and India carrying the region along, another tier of developing countries like Thailand is increasingly playing a more significant role,” said Bryan Ma, Associate Vice President for Client Devices at IDC Asia/Pacific. “The economy of course continues to be a question mark, but if domestic demand remains stable, and if the floods in Thailand don’t cause too much disruption, IDC expects the region to stay on track or even surpass its full year growth forecast of 12%.”

Lenovo continued to forge ahead in its home market of China, driven by its ambition to compete on market share both locally and globally. Improved inventory levels helped ASUS ship aggressively in China this quarter, while also building on its presence in lower tier cities there. Dell, while flat sequentially, continued to invest in China and retained its lead in India for a good year-on-year performance.
