News of reopening Tachilek-Mae Sai Friendship Bridge spreads

The news that the Myawady-Mae Sai Friendship Bridge I on the Thailand-Myanmar border, which was closed for nearly three years, will be reopened on 22 January is speculating, according to locals.
The news of the Tachilek-Mae Sai Friendship Bride I to reopen on 22 January came out after the reopening of the Myawady-Mae Sot Friendship Bridge I, which was closed for nearly three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“On previous days, department offices and the bridge on the Thai side are being cleaned. The opening of the Myawady-Mae Sot Bridge caused it to open this bridge soon. If the bridge is opened, the flow of goods between the two countries will be restored. Tourism in Thailand has resumed as well and it is to be more convenient for inland tourists. This area is better than Myawady,” a local, U Wan Sai, told the Global New Light of Myanmar (GNLM).
The news of reopening the bridge spread last year and officials from the two countries discussed it, but it has not been able to reopen until now.
“I guess that the bridge will be reopened soon as the Myawady-Mae Sot Bridge has been opened. According to information, it is known that the Chiang Rai district authority sent a letter on 11 January to the Tachilek district to open the bridge,” U Arlaw, a goods entrepreneur, told GNLM. —TWA/MKKS
