A total of $110 million worth of commodities were exported to Oman during the first four months of the current Iranian year (March 20-July 21), according to the secretary of Oman Affairs Bureau with the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran.
“Our main exported products were construction materials and equipment, wooden and plastic artifacts, fruit and vegetables, red meat and chicken, food products, machinery parts, lead and copper,” Soheila Rasoulinejad was also quoted as saying by ILNA.
Oman is a southern neighbor of Iran located on the southern side of the Sea of Oman.
Referring to shipping routes between Iranian ports of Jask, Shahid Bahonar, Shahid Rajaee and Khorramshahr and the Omani ports of Al Suwaiq, Shinas, Sohar and Sultan Qaboos Port, Chairman of Iran-Oman Chamber of Commerce Mohsen Zarrabi recently said, “Almost all countries closed their borders with Iran following the spread of the new coronavirus. However, Oman increased its shipping lines with Iranian ports to reduce the transportation costs of its imports.”
