EghtesadOnline: Iran’s agricultural exports from Qasr-e Shirin County’s Khosravi and Parvizkhan border crossings in Kermanshah Province to Iraq reached 351,031 tons worth $89 million in the first seven months of the current Iranian year (March 21-Oct. 22), according to a local official.

“Exports from Parvizkhan border crossing stood at 206,636 tons and from Khosravi checkpoint at 144,395 tons. The main exported products were onions, tomatoes, apples, watermelons and potatoes, which headed to both the Iraqi Kurdistan and the Central Iraqi Government,” Jabbar Khodadadi was also quoted as saying by IRNA.

The official noted that transit through Qasr-e Shirin over the same period reached 42,544 tons, 17,474 tons of which were made via Parvizkhan and 25,060 tons through Khosravi.

Kermanshah in western Iran shares around 371 kilometers of borders with Iraq’s central government as well as the Kurdistan Region. With six official border crossings and markets, the province accounts for almost half of Iran’s annual non-oil exports to Iraq, amounting to more than $3 billion.

Parvizkhan checkpoint accounts for the highest share of Iran’s non-oil exports to Iraq. Last year (March 2021-22), exports from this border crossing to the neighboring country stood at 2.53 million tons worth $1.02 billion.

Khosravi border crossing is home to the biggest international export terminal in the Middle East. 

Typical non-oil exports from Kermanshah to Iraq mainly include tomatoes and tomato paste, air-conditioners, cheese, industrial oils and their derivatives, biscuits, different types of melons, watermelons, tiles and ceramic, plastic bags, marble, yoghurt, milk, cream, cucumbers, eggplants, apples and melamine dishes.
