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.
