The head of Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO) of Astara in the northern Iranian province of Gilan said on Saturday that the weight of exported and imported goods through Astara Port increased by 40 percent in the first eight months of the current Iranian year (March 20-November 21) compared to the same period last year.

Kianoush Amiri told IRNA that during the eight months, 98,000 tons of goods were exported while 37,000 tons were imported.

The figures indicate that the port has had good revenue for the country.

The head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration (IRICA) said on Nov. 1 that Iran exported 65.5 million tons of non-oil commodities worth $18.2 billion during the first seven months of the current Iranian year (March 20-October 21).

Mehdi Mirashrafi put the country’s total non-oil trade in the said period at $38.3 billion, with a total weight of 85 million tons.

He noted that during March 20-October 21, some 19.3 million tons of commodities worth $20 billion were imported into the country, of which 13.8 million tons were basic goods.

Iraq with $4.8 billion, China with $4.4 billion, the UAE with $2.2 billion, Turkey with $1.4 billion, and Afghanistan with $1.3 billion of imports from Iran were among the country’s top export destinations during this period.

Meanwhile, China with $5.1 billion, the UAE with $4.7 billion, Turkey with $2.2 billion, India with $1.2 billion, and Germany with $1 billion of exports to Iran were the top exporting nations to the Islamic Republic, according to Mirashrafi.
