CBI provides $9.5b in six months for import of basic goods, medicine

The Central Bank of Iran (CBI) provided $9.5 billion for importing basic goods as well as medicine in the six months to September 22, a deputy CBI head announced.

Shiva Raveshi said the government allocated $8 billion for the supply of basic goods and medicine and $1.5 billion also was supplied for the imports of COVID-19 vaccine, iribnews.ir reported.

The $9.5 billion that was provided during the said six months is almost equal to the total currency provided for the imports of basic goods in the previous Iranian year (ended on March 20),” She said.

The official went on to say that this shows that this year we performed better in terms of meeting the real needs of the country.

Raveshi said: In the conditions of sanctions and reduction of oil revenues, we met the basic needs of the country and even the necessary materials for the production units, which is considered a success for the country and shows that the capacity of the country's non-oil exports is increasing.”
