Iran’s exclusive fair in Turkmenistan concluded last week in Ashgabat Exhibition and Conference Palace.

Over 100 Iranian companies, including Iran’s leading carmaker Iran Khodro Company, took part in the three-day exhibition that was attended by 300 participants.

IKCO exhibited its latest fuel-efficient vehicles, including Dena, Arisan, Runna and Soren, ILNA wrote.

IKCO Diesel, producer of heavy vehicles and one of IKCO’s subsidiaries, was also present with a range of products such as pickups, minibuses and trucks.  

Iran’s Minister of Industries, Mining and Trade Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh and Turkmenistan’s Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers Batyr Ereshov attended the event.

Speaking in IKCO’s pavilion, Ereshov commented on the quality of Iranian cars and specifically praised IKCO’s Dena.

“Given the high standards of vehicles produced by IKCO, we are eager to have more cars made by the company in Turkmenistan’s auto market,” he said.

While highlighting the fact that the quality of Iranian goods and services has improved, Ereshov called for increasing bilateral trade.  IKCO’s products are well known in Turkmenistan. The large family car Soren, initially produced in 2008, is particularly popular with Turkmen.

The company plans to gain a foothold in Turkmenistan by introducing more of its latest products there.
