Iranian Exports to Nigeria Up 55%

Iran exported $6 million worth of goods to Nigeria during the first 10 months of the current Iranian year (March 21, 2017-Jan. 20), registering a 55% increase compared with the corresponding period of last year, secretary of Trade Promotion Organization of Iran’s Nigeria Desk, Mahmoud Haji Yousefipour, said.
The main exported goods to the African country, he added, included vaseline, paper, biscuit, tomato paste, syrup, chocolate, polyethylene, auto parts, floorings and construction material, IRNA reported.   
“Iran plans to expand cooperation with Nigeria. Recently, there were numerous meetings headed by the Iranian vice president to expand cooperation with Africa, particularly Nigeria, the biggest economy in the continent. A number of decisions had been taken and this will soon translate from words to action,” Iran’s Ambassador to Nigeria Morteza Rahimi Zarchi was quoted as saying in Abuja earlier this month.
