Myanmar ambassador to India, Moe Kyaw Aung, who led the delegation, said, “We have very good relations between India and Myanmar. I hope this meeting will be conducive for the promotion of bilateral relations.”
The ambassador further stated that direct flight routes and proper road connectivity will make it more convenient for the people travelling to India on pilgrimage as well as tourism purposes.
“A majority of the population in Myanmar is Buddhist, so they really want to visit India, where Buddhism originated. But, the cost of travelling across borders are relatively high at present. A more direct flight route and road connectivity will be greatly conducive for the growth of culture and tourism between the two countries,” Aung said.
“Also, there are many Indian tourists who travel to Myanmar. Such facilities would be convenient for the people of both countries,” Aung added..
