delhi Updated: Feb 06, 2009 00:45 IST

Aiming to bolster India's economic, energy and security interests with Myanmar, Vice President Hamid Ansari left in New Delhi on Thursday on a four-day visit to that country during which three agreements are to be signed including one on setting up a truck manufacturing unit.

The two countries will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for setting up an industrial training centre in Myanmar while another accord will be entered into by Tata Motors and Myanmar government for setting up a truck manufacturing unit in that country for which India has given a USD 20 million credit line.

Another MoU will be signed on establishment of a Centre for English Language Training in Myanmar to equip students, civil servants, businessmen and professionals with language skills.

The idea of the Centre, to be set up with India-ASEAN Cooperation Fund, was proposed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at the Indo-ASEAN summit in Kuala Lumpur in 2005.

In the telecom sector, an optic fibre link set up by TCIL between Mandalay and Kolkata would be inaugurated by Ansari.
