Myanmar’s export through border trade amounted to 666 million U.S. dollars in the first 11 months of 2008, an increase of 10 million dollars from the same period of 2007 which registered 656 million dollars, local media reported Wednesday, quoting the Ministry of Commerce.

The export volume was up due to increased export of agricultural produces and forest products which accounted for 355 million dollars and 75 million dollars respectively, the 7-Day News said.
