Imphal: India will explore ways to augment
border trade with Myanmar, and delegates from the two
countries would meet soon to deliberate on the issue, a senior
government official has said.

A joint conference of delegates from both the countries
would be organised soon to find ways and means to enhance
border trade, V L Kantha Rao, Director of Commerce Department,
Government of India, said.

The assurance was given at a meeting of official teams
from both the countries at Tamu, border town of Myanmar,
yesterday.

Rao said for smooth trade national highway 39 should be
properly developed and maintained.

National highway 39 connects three north eastern states
-- Assam, Nagaland and Manipur -- and terminates at
Indo-Myanmar border.
