Pakistan says exports to Iran increased significantly

Islamabad, IRNA -- Advisor to Prime Minister of Pakistan for Commerce and Investment who is expected to visit Iran next month to attend a meeting of the Joint Trade Committee, says Pakistan's exports to the Central Asian countries and the Islamic Republic of Iran have increased significantly.

Abdul Razak Dawood in a tweet on Wednesday said the Ministry of Commerce’s focus on Regional Connectivity to increase trade "with our neighbors is beginning to show results".

He added that Pakistan's exports to neighboring countries, including Iran, the Central Asian region, and Turkey, have grown by 35 percent in the last three months, and the Pakistani Ministry of Commerce is committed to strengthening this trend.

He noted Pakistan's exports to these countries last year were $684 million, and now Pakistan's exports have increased to $938 million in the last three months of this year.

“I encourage our exporters to aggressively market their products in the regional markets to increase their exports,” he tweeted.

Earlier Razak Dawood, during a meeting with an Iranian delegation led by Member of Parliament and President of Iran Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship Group Ahmad Amirabadi Farahani in Islamabad, had said that his upcoming visit to Iran "is very important".
