BUSINESS – Int’l cooperation and spending to tackle increased air traffic

Increasing air traffic through the Bay of Bengal is prompting greater cooperation between Burma, India and Thailand on the issue. The collaboration is improving safety standards, and Burma is also working to increase its technical and disaster response ability, according to Win Swe Tun, director of Burma’s Department of Civil aviation. Air traffic in the country’s airspace brings in revenue, which can be used for training and equipment, according to Myanmar Business Today, as the number of planes along the popular aviation routes rise.
