Iran Exports 42.5bln Worth of Non-Oil Products in Ten Months
Deputy Minister of Industries, Mines and Trade for Trade Affairs Mojtaba Khosrowtaj announced that Iran has exported approximately $42.5bln of various kinds of non-oil goods in the first ten months of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2014-January 20, 2015).
“Today, we have gained $42.5 billion from non-oil exports which is the result of targeted planning in different economic and export fields,” Khosrowtaj said.
He said total activities carried out in the country in the past years in the field of export development have been in line with promotion of products and reaching self-sufficiency.
In January, Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri underscored the necessity for cutting dependence on oil revenues and increasing exports of non-oil products.
“Special increase in the volume of non-oil exports constitutes the government’s most important approach,” Jahangiri said.
“To reach this goal, any obstacle on the way of the Iranian exporters should be removed in addition to granting special facilities to non-oil exports,” he added.
