Iran Steel Market Rocked by Forex Turmoil

Business & Markets Desk

The foreign exchange market recently went in a frenzy, with the rial losing its value against the US dollar on a daily basis.

"Exports are in lockdown," said Khouzestan Steel Company's sales and marketing manager, Bahman Tajalizadeh. "The only exports taking place at the time are our previously arranged obligations and we don't even know how we're going to get the money."
