 Burma's overall foreign trade declined from $299 million (revised from $216
million shown in the Minerals Yearbook, Y. III, 1971) in fiscal year 1970—71
to about $238 million in 1971—72. Although total exports at $113 million
showed only a slight decline, from $124 million in 1970—71, total imports
declined $49 million to $126 mil 
lion according to preliminary estimates. In fiscal 1970-71, Burma exported-
$5.55 million in base metals and ores and $1.28 million in silver. In 1971—72,
base metal exports were unchanged, but silver exports were down by nearly
50% from the previous year.
