Rice, wheat, corn, medicines and 18 other goods have been added to the list of goods for trade at Myanmar-India bordering areas, according to the ministry of commerce.
The Indian Directorate General of Foreign Trade made the decision, which raised the number of border trade items to 62, public through a notification last month.
The border trade agreement between the two countries, which was made on Jan 21, 1994, allowed only 22 kinds of goods. During its third meeting in October 2008, the India-Myanmar joint trade committee added another 18 items to the list.
The other newly added items include agricultural tools, bicycles, coal, garments, edible oil, electrical appliances, steel products, tea, beverages, motor cycles and spare parts, semi precious stone, sewing machines and three wheelers/cars below 100cc.
