Iran announces volume of exports to Iraq and complains about
During a meeting today in Kermanshah with members of the Chamber of Commerce of Babil province, Kashefi said that during the past year, Iran's exports to Iraq for the first time amounted to about 9 billion dollars, including 3 billion through the province of Kermanshah.
Maintaining this volume of exports needs ways to support such meetings, he added.
He added that joint investments and exports of raw materials and the establishment of factories to assemble (montage) some Iranian goods in Iraq, as part of Iran's strategies to develop exports to Iraq, added that the long common border between the two countries should be maximized.
During the recent visit of President Rouhani to Iraq, it was agreed to establish three joint trade centers between the two countries, one of which will be in Kermanshah.
He said that the volume of transit between Iran and Iraq could reach five times, hoping to cancel the visa between the two countries in the light of increased transactions and strengthening relations between them.
