Iran Eyes Greater Share in Syrian Market: TPOI

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An official at the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran (TPOI) said the organization has taken effective measures to get the lion’s share in the Syrian market.

The director general of the West Asia Office of the TPOI said a forum will be held on March 3 to introduce the opportunities in the Syrian market and pave ways for exporting technical and engineering services to Syria, rebuilding the Arab country and providing the goods required by the Arab country.

Abdolamir Rabihavi went on to say that Syria is one of Iran’s export target markets and has been put at the focal attention of Iranian traders for exporting their products.

Emphasizing the need to raise awareness among Iranian traders about the political and economic situation of Syria, Rabihavi added that many Iranian producers and exporters have shown interest in taking part in this forum, slated to be held next week, IRNA reported.

He pointed to the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Tehran and Damascus and added that the customs tariffs agreed with Syria have been minimized to the zero level.

The two countries have high potential and capacities to boost their trade, Rabihavi added.
