A spokesman for the Iranian Customs Authority, Ruhollah Latifi, announced on Sunday that Saudi Arabia has returned to importing goods from Iran after a hiatus of years.
Latifi said in statements that Iran exported goods to more than 143 countries and imported goods from 123 countries during the past Iranian year (ending on March 20, 2021), despite the tightening of the ban and restrictions imposed by the outbreak of the Corona virus.
The Iranian official stated that the volume of Iranian foreign trade during the past six months amounted to 79 million and 100 thousand tons, equivalent to 45 billion dollars, and that the share of Iranian exports from that amounted to 21 billion and 800 million dollars, compared to the volume of the country’s imports during the same period, which amounted to 23 billion and 100 Million dollars.
Latifi pointed to three destinations for Iranian commercial goods, the first of which is China, with more than 9 billion, 77 million and 123 thousand and 234 dollars, the second is Iraq, with 7 billion, 448 million, 431 thousand and 673 dollars, and the third is the UAE, with 4 billion, 661 million and 621 thousand and 682 dollars.
He added that Saudi Arabia imported goods from Iran worth $39,000 during this period, after a long break, considering that Riyadh’s return to Iranian export destinations is “one of the most important issues during the current period.”
