Iran's Non-Oil Exports Exceed $40bln in Ten Months

Economy - Head of Iran's Trade Promotion Organization (TPO) Valiollah Afkhami Rad announced that Iran has exported approximately $42.6bln of various kinds of non-oil goods in the first ten months of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2014-January 20, 2015).

Speaking in a meeting with the directors of exporting companies, Afkhami Rad said that the figure showed 24 percent growth in comparison with the same period last year.

The TPO chief noted that export management companies play a very significant role in increasing exports and need greater support from the government.

In January, Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri underscored the necessity for cutting dependence on oil revenues and increasing exports of non-oil products.

“Special increase in the volume of non-oil exports constitutes the government’s most important approach,” Jahangiri said.

“To reach this goal, any obstacle on the way of the Iranian exporters should be removed in addition to granting special facilities to non-oil exports,” he added.
