About 12,000 tons of rice have been imported into Iran via Bushehr Port from India, Mohammad Shakibi-Nasab, an official with the Bushehr Ports and Maritimes Organization, said on Wednesday.
Some 45,000 tons of rice were imported via Bushehr Port during the last Iranian year that ended on March 19, 2020.
Abbas Tavakkoli, the head of Rice Importers Association, said recently that as much as 500,000 tons of imported rice have been piled up at customs terminals due to complications associated with the provision of foreign currency from the export earnings of non-oil products.
