A new government-led supervisory committee has released around 14,000 cars that had been held at Myanmar’s borders after an informal ban on vehicle imports was imposed last December.
When the last vehicle import supervisory committee was disbanded at the end of last year, thousands of cars bound for Myanmar were held up, commerce minister U Than Myint told The Myanmar Times.
"After re-forming the committee, we allowed about 14,000 cars from the border areas into the country on May 1, extending the permits that had expired. We plan to allow businesses to use these cars if businesspeople will apply," he said.
Earlier this week car dealers and logistics firms said they had struggled to get vehicles and machinery across the borders during the past five months. They believed the restrictions were partly a response to huge volumes of trucks and other types of machinery entering Myanmar from China.
Commerce Minister U Than Myint will chair the new supervisory committee and take responsibility for setting policies and tackling congestion. He will replace former commerce minister U Win Myint who caused great confusion by altering import policy more than a dozen times in five years.
