At the meeting, the Union Minister said that the Tamu trading zone is aimed to promote trade for the interests of residents as the area is close to the India border.

Participants also discussed the bilateral trade, employment opportunities, establishment of a larger trading zone in the future and to form a new committee from Sagaing Region government for supervising closely along with the existing two committees.
The meeting was attended by the Deputy Minister, the Minister for Planning and Finance of Sagaing Region government, the Permanent Secretary, the Directors-General, the Deputy Directors-General, the chairperson of the Kalay-Tamu-Kalewa Border Trade Chamber of Commerce and officials.—MNA
