There are large opportunities for Iranian exports, namely because Russia’s restrictions on imports of Turkish goods have opened up a portion of the market to other exporters. He added that dates imported from Iran are less expensive than those of Turkey. Iranian exporters are no longer isolated as Russia opens its doors to Iranian exporters and customers.
Iran has an advantage over other Latin America, India and Morocco which are also planning to increase exports. However, so long as a country is on so-called friendly terms with Russia, then Russia in the near future will look to activating trade volumes with those countries, the head of the Center for Economic Research of the Institute of Globalization and Social Movements in Russia Vasiliy Koltashov said.
Mina Mehrnoush, general director of planning for Iran’s Organization for Trade Development, confirmed the country’s interest in exporting to the Russian market. During her recent visit to Moscow, she said that now is the optimal time to establish new contacts not only in the agricultural industry but also in other areas of business.
