Iranian small-sized ships will now enjoy services at Al Suwaiq Port in northeast Oman, Chairman of Iran-Oman Chamber of Commerce Mohsen Zarrabi said. After three years of negotiations, Al Suwaiq Port last week extended services to Iranian ships of less than 1,000 tons carrying food, agricultural products and construction materials to the neighboring country. According to Abbas Abdolkhani, Iran’s commercial attaché to Oman, the proximity of Al Suwaiq Port to Iran’s ports of Jask and Bandar Abbas, and Oman’s Muscat and Al Khazain would reduce trade costs between the two countries. “Iranian traders no longer need to send fruits and vegetables to the UAE’s Port of Sharjah for reexportation to Oman,” he was quoted as saying by the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran’s news outlet.
