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.
