Lack of momentum in promoting “economic diplomacy”, the insignificant presence of commercial attachés in target countries and hurdles created by state agencies in the path of exports are the reasons behind Iran's lackluster performance in international trade. 
This was stated by Fatemeh Moqimi, one of the three senior members of Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, in talks with the chamber’s news website about the current state of exports on the occasion of the National Export Day, Mehr News Agency reported.  
The ceremony to mark the day, scheduled for Oct. 20, was called off this year by the National Coronavirus Headquarters to prevent the further spread of Covid-19. 
Thirty-nine prominent exporters who have fulfilled their financial commitments and fully repatriated their export revenues over the past year were to be honored by Minister of Industries, Mining and Trade Alireza Razm-Hosseini during the event. 
“Japan, South Korea, the US and many European countries enjoy the expertise of scores of commercial attachés for marketing and sales of their products in export markets. This is somewhat of a pipedream for Iran’s economic diplomacy,” Moqimi said.  
“With its well-informed experts about export destinations, who have full command of commerce techniques and financial affairs at embassies, Iran’s foreign trade was capable of clearing the barriers during the sanctions regime and, recently, the coronavirus era.”
