Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan Exports to Afghanistan up 56%

More than $181 million worth of good from Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan province entered Afghanistan during the first two months of the current Iranian year (March 20-May 20), marking a 56% increase compared to last year, the Iranian Republic News Agency reports.

The exports mainly included cement, apples, tiles and ceramics, a provincial officer said.

Afghanistan has seen a 30% hike in Iran’s exports this year, valued at $341 million.

According to Iran’s Customs Administration, major commodities exported to Afghanistan included fruit and vegetable, foodstuff, industrial goods and construction materials.

Exports during COVID-19 have grown with Iran because it was one of the few countries to open their international borders early to minimise the economic effects of the pandemic.
