TEHRAN, Dec. 27 (MNA) – Iran's TPO will hold a specialized trade exhibition in the city of Kabul in Afghanistan on March 1-4, 2016.
"The second specialized Trade Exhibition of the Islamic Republic of Iran will be held in Afghanistan with the cooperation of Iran's Trade Promotion Organization (TPO) from March 1-4, 2016," said the executive director of the event expecting that commercial contracts worth 100 million dollars will be signed on the sidelines of the exhibition.
Saeid Sadrzadeh further noted that the exhibition will mark a venue for discussions as well as presentation of Iran's capabilities; "meanwhile, a total of 50 million dollars of trade agreements were inked during the last edition of the exhibition last year," he underlined.
"The volume of Afghanistan's import from Iran adds up to 3 billion dollars which marks 40 per cent of the neighbor country's total imports from the world," maintained Sadrzadeh stating "in other words, Iran possesses a large share of Afghanistan's imported goods market."
The official went on to add that the composition of Afghanistan's imports from Iran is changing in the sense that in the past Iran exported final products like construction materials, food and household goods while at the moment these items have been replaced with raw materials since Afghanistan is undertaking small investments in industries.
