Cement imports through the sea route in the final week of last month declined by some 6,500 tonnes, compared with the preceding week starting 14 January, according to border traders.
Myanmar imported more than 962 tonnes of cement, worth over US$185,000, from its trade partners, via sea, between 21 and 27 January, registering a decrease of more than 6,450 tonnes compared with the previous week.
The country imported some 7,420 tonnes of cement in the week preceding 21 January.
Later last month, importers bought 290 tonnes of cement from neighbouring Thailand and 672 tonnes from the United Arab Emirates.
Despite a decline in the import volume of cement via sea, border imports of similar products between 20 and 26 January rose to 12,440 tonnes, an increase of 6,990 tonnes, compared with the preceding week’s total of 5,450 tonnes. —Swe Nyein
