NEW DELHI : Myanmar has planned to promote trade with India by increasing items of tradable goods.
U Aung Htoo, Deputy Minister for Commerce, told a parliament session in Nay Pyi Taw recently that Myanmar had held high level consultations with India on border trade.
For the purpose of promoting trade between the two countries, a series of joint committee meetings related to bilateral trade, border trade and border- market were held.
High-ranking officials from both sides had extensive discussions on opening a trade zone in Htantalan in Myanmar's Western Chin State and a new trade zone in Pan Khwar, Mizoram State in India.
Moreover, bilateral banking services, cooperation in agriculture, fishery, medicine, and textile sectors had also been discussed.
