A memorandum of understanding was signed between Afghanistan and Sistan-Baluchestan’s chambers of commerce in a meeting attended by director of Afghanistan Advisory Board of National Entrepreneurs and senior advisor to Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce Haji Agha, the Head of Sistan-Baluchestan Chamber of Commerce Abdul-Hakim Rigi and the Head of Agricultural Jihad Organization Reza Najafi in the Iranian border city of Zahedan (the capital of Sistan-Baluchestan) on Sunday.

Businessmen from the Afghan provinces of Kandahar, Nimruz and Farah led by Rahmudin Haji Agha explored investment and trade opportunities in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan in a two-day visit (July 26-27), IRNA reported.

As part of their visit, the 26-strong Afghan business delegation took a tour of Zahedan and Chabahar to assess the two cities’ industrial, trade and transportation capacities.

“Afghan traders are interested in purchasing flour from Iran and establishing joint mills due to this commodity’s high demand in Afghanistan”, Haji Agha was quoted as saying.

The Head of provincial Agricultural Jihad Organization Reza Najafi pointed to Afghanistan’s high trade potential and expressed Iran’s readiness in cooperating with the neighboring country.
