Large-scale smuggling of agricultural products retards farm output production, limits manufacturing, and increase income inequality. " Smuggling in the Philippines is at it's worst under President Aquino's administration, with the smuggled value averaging $19.6 billion annually, an explosion from the comparable figures of $3.1 billion and $3.8 billion yearly during the terms of Presidents Joseph Estrada and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, respectively, " says Rigoberto Tiglao, a noted opinion writer, citing data from the International Monetary Fund.
