Bustling Trade in Chabahar

More than $658 million worth of goods were traded in Chabahar Free Zone during the first ten months of the current year (March 21- January 20), which shows a 68 percent rise compared to the same period last year, Hamed Ali-Mohammad, the CEO of Chabahar Free Trade and Industrial Zone Organization said. The shipment of manufacturers in the free zone to the mainland valued $7 million, while the export of these units to foreign destinations was worth more than $4 million over this period, Ali-Mohammadi said. Home appliances, plastic products, ceramic tiles and health care products were among the goods imported to Chabahar and tea, rice, and electrical goods were the main exports. The Rouhani administration has been trying to expand marine and road transportation in the region since taking office in June 2013, the official said. President Hassan Rouhani and several cabinet members visited Chabahar on December 31 to inspect the facilities, railway network and petrochemical development plans there. Chabahar is a seaport in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan. It is the only Iranian port with direct access to the Indian Ocean through the Sea of Oman.
