Background: In Rangoon, Jan 3, Burmese Prime Minister U Nu opened a trade exhibition organised by the Chinese People's Republic - following the satisfactory settlement of the Sino-Burmese border dispute.
Guest of honour was Chinese Premier Chou-En-Lei, who had come to Rangoon at the head of a 47-man delegation for a seven-day goodwill visit stretching over Burma's Independence Day, Jan 4.
Chi Chao-Ting, the director of the Chinese trade fair, was there to show his guests round the exhibits, including textile machinery, wireless and electronic equipments, tinned food and soft drinks, example of modern Chinese art and - a model railway.
Peking announced on Dec. 30 that China's heavy industry had been severely affected by 1960's natural disasters, which also caused vast agricultural losses. It was nevertheless expected that targets for the main products would be fulfilled.
