Lack of a roadmap for long-term engineering services’ export has hurt domestic businesses in this sector over the past few years, vice president of Iran Electrical Industry Syndicate said.
“Although domestic equipment and technical services comply with international norms, the absence of an independent regulatory body has undermined the related export market,” IRNA quoted Payam Baqeri as saying.
Exporters are confused and businesses are selling their engineering services and goods in international markets in a rather haphazard manner, he noted.
The Trade Promotion Organization of Iran, a body that oversees Iran's foreign trade is (regretfully) import-oriented and facilitates imports rather than help exporters expand their trade, he rued.
Baqeri said that there should be a strong structure in the Presidential Office to regulate and monitor export affairs, in his opinion, a comprehensive roadmap needs to be drawn to tackle exporters’ problems.
