Dr. Than Myint, the Union Minister for Commerce, attended a coordination meeting with officials from the People’s Republic of China at his ministry yesterday, where they discussed opening the Kyin San Kyawt border gate in order to facilitate smoother trade between Myanmar and China.
During the meeting, the Union Minister said officially designating Kyin San Kyawt as a regular border gate will alleviate the congested traffic between the countries during the watermelon and musk melon season. He said the congested traffic is negatively affecting both growers in Myanmar and merchants in Yunnan Province.
Deputy Minister for Commerce U Aung Htoo then explained about opening Kyin San Kyawt border gate (Mahnma – Nwan Yin) and trade between Myanmar and China.
Ms. Li Xiaoyan, Minister Counsellor from the China Embassy to Myanmar, also explained about China’s efforts to officially open the aforementioned border gate and their plans to decrease the traffic congestion in the border trade area, including increasing cargo inspection time and appointing more inspection staff.
Next, the commercial attaché of China said they will coordinate on increasing border gates between the two countries and swiftly opening Kyin San Kyawt border gate.
Afterwards, departmental officials from the ministries of foreign affairs and defence gave explanations on their respective tasks. —MNA (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
