Agricultural and food products accounted for more than 20% of Iran's total non-oil exports during the first two months of the current Iranian year (March 20-May 20).
According to Agriculture Ministry, a total of 1.67 million tons of agrifood products worth over $890 were exported from Iran during the period to register a 19.44% rise in tonnage but 8.79% decline in value compared with last year’s corresponding period.
Total non-oil exports, according to Rouhollah Latifi, the spokesperson of Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, stood at 14.5 million tons worth $4.3 billion during the same period.
Oil-based products and by-products, as well as petrochemical products, are included in IRICA's non-oil export data. In fact, petrochemicals and gas condensates constitute the greater share of total exports. Therefore, the true share of agrifood products in the real value of non-oil related products is much higher than 20%.
