An agreement was signed in Yangon by the Foreign Ministers of India, Myanmar and Thailand to develop transport linkages between the three countries. When complete, the 1,400 km road corridor will be a highway of friendship linking the peoples of South and Southeast Asia. The planned deep seaport in Dawei, together with the new highway connecting it to Kanchanaburi in Thailand, will no doubt contribute towards developing closer trade and commercial links between the two regions. The capital, largest city, and principal seaport is Yangon. Mandalay, in central Myanmar, is an important trade center. Other important cities are Moulmein, on the Gulf of Martaban, and Sittwe. Once a fishing village, Sittwe is now a major seaport on the Bay of Bengal. The Gyaing and the Attaran rivers meet the Salween at its mouth, and the three rivers form the harbour of Moulmein, the second seaport of Burma. Located on the banks of the Salween River, Moulmein is a seaport to national and regional areas.
