The report “Illicit Financial Flows to and from the Philippines” documented the incidence of smuggling from 1960 to 2011.

When President Noynoy Aquino assumed office in 2010, $22.9 billion of illicit inflows was reported. In 2011, the illicit inflows reached its all-time high of $25.8 billion.

The study found out “that between 1960 and 2011, illicit financial outflows from the Philippines
totaled $132.9 billion, while illicit inflows amounted to $277.6 billion.” This was accomplished through the “misinvoicing of trade, rather than through hot money flows such as unrecorded wire transfers.”
