Suitcase Trade Up 30%

Suitcase trade between Iran and the Commonwealth of Independent States during the first six months of the current Iranian year (started March 21) stood at $44.4 million, indicating a 30% increase compared to the preceding year’s similar period, Eghtesad News reported. Suitcase trade in Iran refers to small-scale exports and imports of goods carried out by passengers often across the borders in their luggage, which are then sold in the market for profit. Lotfabad border crossing in Khorasan Razavi, Astara in Gilan and Sarv in West Azarbaijan provinces were the main hubs of suitcase trade during the period.
