MANILA, Philippines — President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has appointed Sixto Esquivias the new Bureau of Internal Revemue commissioner, Finance Secretary Margarito Teves said.

Esquivias, who served as deputy commissioner of the BIR several years back, will replace Lilian Hefti, who resigned earlier this month, Teves said.
