Goods are being imported at Teknaf land port as the situation is calm. Yesterday Monday afternoon, it was seen that two trawlers loaded with import goods from Sittwe arrived at the port. Workers are unloading coconuts, pickles, mung beans, dry betel nuts, wood and frozen fish from trawlers.

Omar Farooq, a product importer on a trawler, said that 80 percent of product imports at the Teknaf land port have fallen due to the one-and-a-half months of conflict in Rakhine State. Earlier, 15-20 cargo trawlers arrived daily, but now seven-eight are coming in a week. If the conflict escalates, the import of goods at land ports may be stopped.

In the last eight days, 12 cargo trawlers loaded with goods from Sittwe arrived at the port, Customs Superintendent of Customs Department of Teknaf Land Port BM Abdullah Al Masum said, border trade is being damaged due to the conflict in Rakhine State. Revenues are down. The export of goods to Myanmar has been stopped since the first week of last January.
