Myanmar – China border trade hasn’t yet to resumed to normal10 Jul 2020
Myanmar-China Border Trade has not yet returned to normal, but some trucks carrying rice leave the Muse border trade daily, U Min Thein, Vice President of Muse Wholesale Market, told Myanmar Business Today.
“The border gates likely remain closed until the COVID-19 disappear,” he added.
Authorities still ban people going through the border gates between Myanmar and China except for some freight trucks. Myanmar exports around 15,000-20,000 bags of rice daily as well as onion and green gram while China exports textile, construction materials, electronics, and food to Myanmar.
Before the COVID-19, around thousand of trucks passed through the border gates between the two neighbors. But the number has decreased significantly.
When Chinese President Xi visited Myanmar on January 17-18 this year, the two countries signed 33 agreements in various sectors.
