Trade jumps at Burmese-Thai cross-border checkpoint

26 March 2012
(Mizzima) – The Mae Sot-Myawaddy border trade checkpoint 
on the Burma-Thailand border could take in US $277 million in the 
first quarter of 2012 because of improved economic and social 
conditions in Burma, officials said. The quarter marks the first trade 
figures since the checkpoint was reopened in December 2011 after 
being closed more than one year.
