Exports from Iran's free trade and special economic zones account for 40% of the country’s total exports during the seven years since President Hassan Rouhani first took office in August 2013. 
According to Secretary of the High Council of Free Trade Zones and Special Economic Areas Morteza Bank, exports through FTZs and SEZs reached $169 billion during the period under review.
