Over 1,100 tons of food products are exported every day to Qatar from the ports in Iran’s southern province of Bushehr on the Persian Gulf, the head of Ports and Maritime office of Bushehr Province says.
Over the past week, a total of 5,000 tons of food exports have been sent to the peninsular state in southern Persian Gulf, Mohammad Mahdi Benchari told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Tuesday.
“Every day, 750 tons of food products from Bolkheir Port in Tangestan region as well as 350 tons from Dayyer port are exported to Qatar,” Benchari said.
The province’s ports are in a strategic location on the shores of the Persian Gulf, with some 148 nautical miles away from Qatar, and this has created a good opportunity for Bushehr to export goods to the Arab state, according to the official.
Emphasizing the province’s capacities for exporting food products to Qatar, he noted that Dayyer, Bolkheir and Genaveh ports are leading in maritime trade with the Persian Gulf country.
“937 kilometers of coast line has made Bushehr Province a strategic spot on the international waterway of the Persian Gulf.
This has provided the province with a privilege securing Bushehr an opportunity to enhance trade ties with the Persian Gulf littoral states, the official added.
