The Ministry of Planning and Finance aims to establish border trade posts and zones near the boundary lines, aligning with international norms. The evaluating committee, assigned with this objective, presented its findings during its second meeting held on Saturday.
At the meeting, Committee Chairman Deputy Minister U Maung Maung Win emphasized that the projects should proceed as per the specifications of existing border posts, considering their potential for expansion, import and export volumes for the financial year 2022-23, the necessity of land surveys, the availability of allocated land, associated costs, proximity to trade posts in neighbouring countries, and security considerations.
During its inaugural meeting, the committee decided that state and regional working committees must assess whether the projects conform to international norms and procedures, local laws, regulations, and codes of conduct established by relevant governmental bodies. The projects should also adhere to international laws and effectively address the issue of contraband.
The country must implement the ASEAN Customs Transit System, Single Window Inspection, and Single Stop Customs Inspection in line with the ASEAN Framework Agreement on the Facilitation of Goods in Transit and the Greater Mekong Sub-Region Cross Border Transport Agreement. — TWA/NT
