Myanmar-India border route reopened

KALAY—The Myanmar-India border route reopened on Tuesday a month after closing, according to Win Tin from the Tamu Traders Association.

“They [India] opened the gate today [March 11]. Wheat was brought from India while Myanmar brought betel nuts. The goods from Myanmar have already been purchased by the Indian traders,” said Win Tin.

“It is impossible that Myanmar traders will show losses once the trade route is reopened. Traders from both countries have suffered since it was closed.”

A spokesperson from the Tamu Youth Network said that goods from Moeyay were allowed through the border on Wednesday.

“The Kathe Thingyan is getting nearer, so we can say the Narpharlone Market is in good shape,” the spokesperson said.

India has closed down the trade route several times, but the recent shutdown was the longest.
