The exports of Myanmar’s agriculture and other perishable goods to China are still operating as usual despite the civil disobedience movement hampering the country’s imports.
“Many people are participating in demonstrations. These include agents from the border trade posts. Agents from the import section are involved in the civil disobedience movement and this has led to delays in import activities. More than 100 trucks of imported products were prohibited from entering into the trading zone,” said Daw Ye Ye Khaing, the in-charge of the 105 mile Muse Wholesale Centre.
“However, we can still transport crop exports to China as some of the staffs from the export section are not taking part in the movement,” she added.
Myanmar’s export of watermelons, cucumbers, mangoes, fish, crabs and eels are still transported into China as usual.
