About 40 trucks of Myanmar products consisting of rice and broken rice, rubber, various types of peas, dried plums, watermelon, melons and other foodstuffs are daily conveyed to China through the Kyinsankyawt checkpoint at the Muse border trade.

The rice price fetched about 150 Yuan per 108-pound bag which reached China, said U Min Thein, vice-chairman of Muse Rice Wholesale Centre.
About 10,000 rice bags are daily exported to China through the Kyinsankyawt border post at the Muse border trade zone.
The rice and low-quality rice, stranded in Muse, are being exported to China. But the rice from the lower region had not yet been exported to Muse, U Min Thein clarified.
“We are not allowed convey the rice from the lower region to Muse. We have to clean up the items in Muse that were stuck six months ago,” he added.
China has closed down most of the border posts from the Muse trade zone following COVID-19 cases in Myanmar. Among the Sino-Myanmar land borders, Kyinsankyawt crossing resumed operations on 26 November.
