Iran wants to promote agri trade with Pakistan

Last Tuesday a delegation of entrepreneurs from the West Azerbaijan province of Iran, led by Behnam Tajodinni of the Urmia Chamber of Commerce & Industry, visited the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry. They were very interested in developing strong trade relations with Pakistan.

West Azerbaijan is the third largest province of Iran with one of the highest yields of agricultural products. The province annually produces 6 million tons of fruits and vegetables, 1.2 million tons of apples, 380,000 tons of grapes and 280,000 tons of apricots. There are 326 cold storage facilities for a total capacity of 1 million tons.

The province is also among the top honey producing regions and is a hub of Iranian import and export activities. Tajodinni claimed this province has great potential for cooperation with Pakistan. He stressed that businessmen from the agriculture industries of both countries should develop close ties, promoting bilateral trade of agro products between Iran and Pakistan.

Website nation.com.pk reported that Tajodinni spoke about the 32 Iranian trucks, loaded with agriculture products, that have been stuck up on Pakistani border in Balochistan for the last 10 days. Pakistan still has not given an explanation for that. Tajodinni claimed that such measures were discouraging any efforts to improve bilateral trade between the two countries.
