EghtesadOnline: More than $1.4 billion worth of goods were exported from the western Kermanshah Province during the first nine months of the current Iranian year (started March 21), registering a 2% rise compared to last year’s corresponding period.
The exported goods mainly included tiles, ceramics, plastic and melamine containers, potato, evaporative cooler, cement, washing liquid and powder, tomato paste, polished marble and steel products. Exports were made to 38 countries, although neighboring Iraq was the main export destination, IRNA reported. Kermanshah shares 371 kilometers of borders with Iraq. The province has six official and active border markets and accounts for half of Iran’s non-oil exports to the western neighbor. The western Iranian province was hit by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake on Nov. 8, leaving hundreds of people dead and thousands of other injured, Financial Tribune reported.
