Border postsEdit

Htee Kee is the name of the new town in the Tanintharyi Region on the Burmese side of the border which is currently being developed.[2] The Phu Nam Ron pass is expected to gain in importance if the planned Dawei deepwater port project goes ahead, which includes a highway and a railway line between Bangkok and that harbor.[3]

The road on the Burmese side leads to Dawei via Sinbyudaing and Myitta; it has been recently been upgraded.[4]
