The Myanmar-Laos Friendship Bridge in Kenglat of Tachilek District in Eastern Shan State was reopened yesterday.
The entry and exit of that friendship bridge, which is a major route for bilateral trade, were shut down two years ago during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The drivers have to show their COVID-19 vaccination record and test certificate made once every two weeks, and it allows only the driver and conductor to upload the goods at the designated place.
It will be open from 7 am to 5 pm and the trade must be made just in one day and the entry and exit of people is still banned.
Moreover, the two countries agreed to send Myanmar’s products to Laos to export to China via Laos.
The bridge opening ceremony was attended by the Myanmar delegation led by Kenglat Administrator U Aung Myo Htwe and Laos officials led by Mr Houmphan Chanthavong.
The friendship bridge constructed on 16 February 2013 links Myanmar’s Tachilek in Eastern Shan State and Laungnamtha Province of Laos. — TWA/GNLM
