Two countries -India and Myanmar has been connected by road on March 27. The link road connects DAN International Trade Centre (ITC), Pangsha to Pounyu (Hemphu) Naga village in Myanmar. Pangsha falls under Noklak Sub-division in Tuensang district and Pounyu falls under Lahe district in Myanmar. Welcoming the recent development taking place along the Indo-Myanmar border which has connected two countries India and Myanmar, P. Longon, minister for Land Resources Development and Soil and water conservation said it was a landmark and a milestone achievement. The minister also thanked the government of Nagaland and government of Myanmar for bringing development in the Khiamniungan areas and expressed hope that more developments would be taken up in the days to come by both the governments. Nagaland has five border trade centers - Lungwa in Mon district, Pansgha in Noklak Sub-division in Tuensang district, Mimi in Kiphrie district, Avangkhu and Molhe under Meluri sub-division in Phek district. After the formal opening of the Indo-Myanmar border trade in 1995, the Indian side had also taken up certain infrastructure projects in Myanmar like the Tamu-Kalemyo highway where border trade has been slowly flourishing along the India and Myanmar border.
