China trade fair boosts business for Myanmar firms

A FOUR-day Myanmar-China trade fair held in Nay Pyi Taw between May 25-28 attracted more than 100 businesspeople from both countries and saw numerous deals signed.

Companies from the two countries signed agreements on business cooperation for agricultural products, foodstuff, beverages, pharmaceuticals, household appliances and electric vehicles.

U Khin Aung Thet, manager of Six Six Eight Co Ltd, a beans and pulses company from Myanmar, which had signed an agreement with a Chinese company, said, “It’s an opportunity. As a result, we will sell to China.”

Daw Cho Cho Aye, owner of Myat San jade and jewellery, said she is happy to take part.

“We are exhibiting our products for the first time,” she said.

Daw Cho Cho Ayee comes from Hpakant in Kachin State, known for its jade products.

“Chinese people love jade from Kachin State and owing to this its price is relatively high,” she said.

Ma May Zaw Khine, founder of Danu Mal Coffee and Food Production, eyes the vast Chinese coffee market.

“We have received offers to coffee to China. If we export more, our farmers will benefit,” she said, adding she is now exporting coffee to Thailand. — Xinhua
