Iran to export 20mln tons of building materials to Qatar

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran is planning to export 20 million tons of construction materials and industrial minerals to Qatar with a value of $300 million per year, the governor-general of southeastern province of Bushehr announced on Saturday.
 “If all the mining capacity of Bushehr Province is utilized, Iran will have an income of over $300 million a year through exporting 20 million tons of (construction materials to Qatar),” Bushehr Provinceˈs Governor-General Mostafa Salari said in an address to a meeting with local officials.

He also commented on Qatar’s hosting of the World Cup in 2022 and said this is a good opportunity for the Bushehr Province.

Iran will export the building materials to Qatar under a cooperation agreement signed between the two countries during a visit by an Iranian trade delegation headed by Salari to the Qatari capital of Doha.

Based on the deal, Qatar will invest in Bushehr province in different fields such as agriculture, mining, port operations, and agricultural processing industries.

Salari’s trip to Qatar came after last month’s visit to Bushehr by a Qatari economic delegation.

The Qatari delegation in that visit learned about the economic potentials of the southern Iranian province and the possibility of importing agricultural products and construction materials from the province.

Iran’s ties with the Persian Gulf littoral states has been growing recently as the Islamic Republic is willing to upgrade relations with the Arab states to the highest level.
