Border trade between India and Myanmar in the Sagaing region will resume on Wednesday after it was stopped in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The international gate at the border was closed in March due to the pandemic.

The authorities have decided to resume the trade with strict Covid-19 protocols.

“Border trade will resume on January 6, but there will be some changes as the virus has also spread in India. We need to discuss how to prevent infection while carrying on with the trade,” Myanmar Times quoted an official as saying.

Most of the vehicles engaged in the India-Myanmar border trade pass through Tamu crossing and the Reed crossing in Chin state.
