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.
