Iran Gov’t to Curtail Imports in Support of Local Production

On the order of the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei regarding the need to support domestic products, the government is preparing a list of goods, the imports of which will be either banned or restricted, a deputy minister of industries, mining and trade said.
The list pertains to imported commodities that are already being manufactured by local producers.
“Imports of some goods will be restricted by increasing customs duties while the entry of certain other goods will be altogether banned,” Mojtaba Khosrotaj, who doubles as the chairman of Trade Promotion Organization of Iran, was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
Speaking at the Eid al-Fitr prayers on June 16, the Leader strongly urged businesspeople active in foreign trade to abstain from importing non-essential commodities produced inside the country.
Earlier, the Leader dubbed the current Iranian year, which began on March 21, “Support for Iranian Products”.
