TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The supervisor of the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran (TPOI) for the Indian Subcontinent, Mohammad Sadegh Ghannadzadeh, announced the inauguration of the country’s trade center in Afghanistan on Saturday.
A 70-member Iranian trade delegation, composed of the public and private sectors, is scheduled to travel to Afghanistan's capital of Kabul on Saturday, March 4, for the inauguration of the country’s trade center.
Afghanistan is one of Iran’s strategic trade partners which has longstanding historical and cultural relations and also religious and social commonalities with the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ghannadzadeh said.
Iran’s lack of an active trade center in Afghanistan has been one of the major problems in its interaction with the Republic of Afghanistan, especially after the recent developments in the neighboring country, he continued.
Today, more than 70 Iranian traders and economic activists will travel to Kabul within the framework of a trade delegation for the inauguration of a trade center, he said, adding that the trade center will be launched in an 11-story trade tower which has all necessary facilities for trade and economic activities.
Presently, 30 to 40 trade firms have carried out their registration operations for deploying in this center, he stated, noting that there are representatives in this center that can carry out marketing and research activities for the traders as well.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Ghannadzadeh said that a working group has been set up for issuing licenses and evaluating trader centers on a monthly basis.
