Morales, Zarif Attend Economic Forum

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his 80-strong accompanying delegation attended a joint economic forum in La Paz in the presence of Bolivian Leader Evo Morales on late Friday. Some 200 representatives of both public and private sectors from the two sides stressed the need to boost bilateral economic ties.   President Morales, his Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade David Choquehuanca were present at the meeting, IRNA reported.
According to the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, Iran exported $473,800 worth of goods to Bolivia during the past Iranian year (March 2015-16), up 242% from the year before. The IRICA registered no imports from the South American country in recent years.
Latest data on bilateral trade pertains to the first four months of the current Iranian year (March 20-July 21), during which period Iran exported 44 tons of bitumen and asphalt to Bolivia.
Zarif headed for Venezuela on Saturday on the last leg of his Latin American tour which started on August 21 in Cuba, and later took him to Nicaragua, Ecuador, Chile and Bolivia.
