A total of $2.5 billion worth of non-oil commodities were exported from Iran to the littoral states of Persian Gulf and Middle Eastern countries during the first five months of the current Iranian year (March 20-Aug. 21).
According to Director General of Trade Promotion Organization of Iran’s Arab and African Countries Bureau Farzad Piltan, Iraq, the UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Syria, Qatar, Jordan, Lebanon and Bahrain were the main destinations.
“The export value shows a $3.5 billion decline compared with the similar period of last year. The fall in value has to do with the closure of borders due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pandemic,” the official was quoted as saying by ILNA.
