YANGON: Myanmar and India have launched a pilot industrial project run with biogas under the energy sector development programme of a sub-regional five-country economic grouping, Xinhua reports.

The Myanmar-India industrial project of the Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Thailand-Economic Cooperation (BIMST-EC) is being implemented in Mandalay division's Myingyan area by the Myanmar Forest Department and the Energy and Resources Institute of India, The New Light of Myanmar newspaper reported Thursday.

The grouping plans to set up a BIMST-EC Energy Information Centre in Myanmar as well as two export groups from the member states for cooperation in the natural gas and renewable energy sectors.

The energy sector is among six priority sectors for cooperation initially designated by the BIMST-EC, which was originally formed in Thailand in June 1997 by four Asian nations -- Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka and Thailand -- bordering the Bay of Bengal.

Its membership was later extended to Myanmar in August that year.

The other sectors for cooperation are trade and investment, technology, transport and communications, tourism and fishery with two more sectors of agriculture and natural disaster preparedness being added later.
