    Burma lifts ban on 7 Thai products

    Burma lifts ban on 7 Thai products
    23/11/2010

    Burma has lifted its ban on seven out of 15 Thai products, Deputy Commerce Minister Alongkorn Ponlaboot said on Tuesday.

    Mr Alongkorn said the seven items are apples, Chinese pears, grapes, cherries, monkey apples, oranges and durian.

    The Thai government had asked Burma to consider lifting the ban on four more items - rambutan, mangosteen, guava and longgong. Burma should lift the ban on longgong since it did not produce them, he said.

    The Burmese government said it will continue to ban beverage and instant noodle products because it wanted to protect its consumers. The country will allow Thai beverages to be sold in tourist hotels.

    Burma says Thai seasoning products are not allowed to be sold in the country as they are harmful to people's health. Hotels and duty free shops in Burma can import canned products, chocolates, bubble gum, alcoholic drinks, cakes, waffles and crackers from Thailand.

    Mr Alongkorn said the ban on the 15 items had not significantly affected trading between the two countries.

    "We should promote exports of cement, tiles and construction materials to Burma since the country is in the process of development and the demand for these items is high," the deputy minister said.

    And its government should come with a health warning, too.
