Int’l Forum Aimed at Unlocking Full Capacity of Caspian Ports

A two-day international forum dubbed “Export Promotion Through the Caspian Sea” opened in the northern Amirabad Port, Mazandaran Province, on Wednesday. 
The event is attended by officials from Iran as well as eight countries, namely Russia, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, India and Afghanistan.
“The littoral states of the Caspian Sea only use one-fifth of the capacity of Caspian ports,” Mohammad Rastad, deputy minister of roads and urban development and director general of Ports and Maritime Organization of Iran, said in an address to the forum, IRNA reported.
Rastad added that Iran’s northern ports have a throughput capacity of around 30 million tons, of which only 5-6 million are used annually.
