    BANGKOK, 12 February 2010 (NNT) The Thai-Myanmar Business Council will be jointly established by the Federation of Thai Industries, the Thai Chamber of Commerce, and the Thai Bankers' Association with the goal to increase border investments.

    The Thai-Myanmar business council will facilitate cooperation and promote trade between the Thai and Myanmar private sectors for trade and investment growth. FTI Chairman Thanit Sorat said that a trade growth of 20% or 80 billion THB is expected in 2-3 years with the current value of 60-70 billion THB.

    Recently, the Thai-Myanmar trade along the Mae Sot-Myawaddy border in Tak province has enjoyed growth exceeding target. The trade has risen by 28-30% compared to the same period last year.

    Meanwhile, popular products from Thailand in Myanmar as well as in Japan and Europe include bed sheets and curtains which have gained 0% tax advantage from the ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA).

    I thought they already had when Thai announced that the Jewelry and Gems trade was going to go up sharply this year,, hell ain't that due to Thai fencing Burmese gold and gems for the ruling Generals?

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the famously long-delayed border crossing near Kanchanaburi, due to open this year? (Oh aye)
