The two Myanmar-Bangladesh border trade camps — Sittway trade camp and Maungtaw border trade camp — earned $3.56 million from border trade in May 2022 and that amount was higher than in April, according to the Rakhine State Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
In May, Myanmar exported $3,565,708 worth of products (7,310 metric tons) to the Teknaf jetty of Bangladesh and imported products worth $9,540.
The country exported $1.9 million worth of marine products and it was about 55 per cent of trade volume in May. Moreover, it exported more than 1,500 tonnes of rohu from Yangon and Ayeyawady fish farms worth $1.81 million.
The products of Rakhine State such as areca nut, coconut and other things including the products from other regions and states like palm fruit jam, ginger, onion and other crops are also exported to Bangladesh.
Although the import volume was low, the officials imported $750 worth of 5,000 T-shirts to the Sittway trade camp and $8790 worth of products including PVC pipes to the Maungtaw border trade camp.
The trade camps made $2.86 worth of trade in April and the export was more $700,000 than the previous month. — TWA/ GNLM
