An Iranian official announced, on Tuesday, that his country had exported 214,000 tons of non-oil goods to Iraq, at a value of $44 million, through a single commercial port that reopened in August of last year.
The governor of Dasht-e Azadekan city, Khuzestan province, Iran, Hamid Silawi, said, in statements followed by "Economy News", that "Iran exported, through the attractive commercial port, 214,000 tons of non-oil goods to Iraq, valued at 44 million dollars," noting that "the goods were distributed between fruits, dairy, mechanical tools, and building materials.”
Silawi pointed out that "the export of goods through the attractive crossing was stopped last year due to Corona," explaining that "the reopening of this port took place in August last year, which led to the re-export in accordance with health obligations."
Silawi expressed his hope that "the process of exporting goods through the attractive crossing will increase in the coming months, in regular consultation with local officials and the customs department in Iraq," noting that "the entry of Iraqi tourists and visitors to the country through the attractive port is still prohibited in accordance with the agreement between officials of the two countries."
On the Iraqi side, the Iranian attractive port corresponds to Mandif Al-Sheeb in Maysan Governorate, southern Iraq.
