Border trade between India and Myanmar slowed down by over 40% for the current fiscal year, due to the temporary closure of border posts because of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, according to a news report. The value of trade went down from $128 million to $76 million noted Thura Swiss, the agency that conducted the research.
