Another Myanmar port mulled

Bangkok: Plans are afoot to build a big deepwater port at Kalargote in southern Myanmar’s Mon state. The local government is conducting a feasibility study on the port  that would handle bulk and container cargoes. Its strategic location would mean shippers from Thailand and Laos could conceivably use it too.  The news comes as plenty of other ports are on the drawing board in Myanmar with both India and China courting the up-and-coming nation while Thailand is pushing ahead with the Dawei megaport project.  [07/08/13]
