The state government is looking into every possibility of beginning trade and commerce with Myanmar as part of the BJP-led Centre’s Act East Policy. It needs to be mentioned that efforts are being made for such avenues through the Avakhung village in Phek district, which is the last Indian village along the Myanmar border. DGP TJ Longkumer and MLA from Meluri, Yitachu visited Avakhung village for inspection.

Yitachu maintained that the Nagaland government is working in close coordination with the Centre to unlock the border with Myanmar for trade and commerce.
