Exports From W. Azarbaijan Grow 7.7%

Some $420 million worth of commodities were exported from West Azarbaijan Province in northwest Iran during the first 10 months of the current Iranian year (March 21, 2017-Jan. 20), showing a 7.7% increase compared with the corresponding period of last year, the head of West Azarbaijan Industries, Mining and Trade Organization said.
“The main export destinations were Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia and the littoral states of the Persian Gulf,” Ja’far Sadeq Eskandari was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
West Azarbaijan has five land border crossings, namely Poldasht, Bazargan, Razi, Sarv and Tamarchin. The province borders Turkey, Iraq and Azerbaijan’s Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic.
West Azarbaijan is one of the main agricultural hubs of Iran, as its 1.3 million hectares of arable land account for close to 6% of the country’s total agricultural production.
Watermelon, walnut, plum, tomato, almond and apple are the main agro products exported from the northwestern Iranian province.
