TPOI: Iran foreign trade will hit $100b

Tehran, Oct 1, IRNA – A TPOI official said that Iran’s foreign trade will reach $100b.
Director General of Trade Promotion Organization of Iran (TPOI) Valiollah Afkhami-Rad made the statement on Tuesday adding that the country exported $22.7b non-oil goods, including gas condensates, in six months ending September 22.

He said that the figure shows a 22-percent rise compared with the same period of last year.

China, Iraq, the UAE, India and Afghanistan were the main importers of non-oil products from Iran.

Afkhami-Rad also said his organization intends to boost the quantity and quality of Iranian goods being exported to other states.

The statistics show a hopeful future for the country’s foreign trade.

The latest customs data showed Iran’s total foreign trade hit $49.69b between March 21 and September 22.

The recent increase in the volume of Iran’s non-oil exports comes despite the illegal sanctions imposed against the Islamic Republic over its nuclear energy program.

President Hassan Rouhani’s administration has also been implementing several economic and political measures to boost the country’s non-oil exports since he took office last year.
