Managing Director of Iran’s Business Training Center said on Sunday that Iran has only a 28-million-dollar share in export to Russia’s 20-billion-dollar medical products’ market.
‘Iran’s share in exporting such goods as chemical and mining products, fuel, tar, heavy machines and automobiles, too, is very insignificant,’ Abbas Khaleqitabar told IRNA.
He added that the existence of a large market as Russia to the north of Iran provides a golden opportunity for the Iranian goods, especially for exports of agricultural products and foodstuff.
The Business Training Center’s top official said that the growing Iran-Russia relations, halting of Turkey’s exports to Russia and termination of the anti-Iranian sanctions have joined hands to provide a good opportunity for Iran to export a variety of goods to Russia.
Khaleqitabar, meanwhile, said that easing the customs’
procedures aimed at boosting the bilateral trade with Russia is a dire need of today and therefore the concerned officials are helping to provide for the establishment of a green corridor for this purpose.
