Myawady border trade zone resumes as normal

The Myawady border trade zone in Kayin State was reopened yesterday and the trade activities were operated as usual.
There was an armed engagement on the Myawady-Kawkareik Asia Highway on the morning of 18 August and the trading zone was temporarily suspended. It was resumed on the morning of 19 August, the GNLM quoted truck driver Ko Aung Aung Oo as saying.
After reopening the trading zone, the trucks were inspected and so there was a long queue of lorries and which caused heavy traffic jams from the approach road (Myaynigon) traffic light of the No (2) Friendship Bridge to Mekanal Ywathit. Currently, it returns to normal.
“All the people from trading zone areas were removed including vehicles due to the clash yesterday. Then, it was closed. The people from there moved to the Myawady area. It did not allow passing the Asia Highway and also entry and exit of the township temporarily. It returned to normal this morning,” Ko Ar Ti, a resident told the GNLM. — TWA/GNLM
