In a bid to strengthen trade relations between Myanmar and Thailand, a business matching event was held at the Pearl Laguna Resort in Myeik District of Taninthayi Region.
The matching event was jointly organized by the Prachuap-Myeik Trading and Investment Promotion Association (PMTA) and the Myeik District Chambers of Commerce and Industry (MCCI).
PMTA president Mr. Weera gave the welcoming speech at the event. Afterwards, MCCI officials and businessmen from the two countries discussed matters concerning trade relations at the Mawtaung border gate, the banking system in Prachuap and Myeik, permits for Thai citizens opening bank accounts in Myanmar, and the formation of a working group comprising ten representatives each from Myanmar and Thailand to promote trade. They also talked about the healthcare sector, tourism, and SME development. Later, they exchanged commemorative presents. About 100 PMTA members attended the business matching event. Border trade through Myeik gate was estimated at US$52.9 million in the past three months of the 2019-2020 fiscal year compared with $68.7 million registered in the year-ago period. —Myeik IPRD (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
