According the latest statistics released by the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, Iran exported more than 62,700 tons of non-oil goods worth $22.4 million to Malaysia during the first six months of the current Iranian year (started March 20), which indicates a 17% rise over the similar period of a year before. Steel products, petrochemicals, dates, pistachios, gypsum, zinc and lead were among the main exports.
