Myanmar made the discussion with the authorities from the Yunan Province and Shanghai Province to export agricultural and livestock products from Yangon market12 มิถุนายน 2562
Myanmar is currently having discussions with authorities from Yunnan province and Shanghai province in order to export agricultural and livestock products from the Yangon market, said U Phyo Min Thein, Chief Minister of Yangon.
“We are trying to find a stable market to help develop the agriculture and livestock sectors. It is now difficult to store and transport goods after they are moved to the border. Therefore, we are in discussion with authorities from Yunnan and Shanghai to export the products from Nyaung Hnapin Agriculture and Livestock Economic Zone to the two provinces,” he added.
Shanghai currently imports 90 percent of agriculture and livestock products they consume. Therefore, Myanmar has a prime opportunity to export value added food products to the Chinese market, they can do this by air or through land crossings.
The Yangon regional government has already started negotiating with the Ministry of Commerce. In mid-2018, Myanmar traders faced significant losses because their agricultural exports to China got stuck at the border trade posts because buyers were not present.
