Myanmar Suspended Imports from Thailand at Border


               BANGKOK (Dec. 2) XINHUA - Myanmar
               has suspended the imports from Thailand
               via the Mae Sot border checkpoint in
               Thailand's Tak province. 

               Myanmar's Myawaddy local authorities
               last weekend ordered the suspension
               without giving any explanation, leaving
               consumer goods, construction materials,
               auto parts worth millions of baht from
               Thailand stranded at Mae Sot district,
               local newspapers said today. 

               Thai customs officials said that Myanmar
               suspended its imports through the
               checkpoint pending the improvement of its
               tariff collection system after the Myanmar
               currency weakened against the baht and
               the U.S. dollar late last month. 

               The checkpoint was expected to return to
               normal this Friday, the officials added.
