Evening market opportunity for Iranian goods

Evening market opportunity for Iranian goods
Before the war, the trade of non-oil goods between Iran and Syria was increasing, but after that, in addition to the war, we witnessed the presence and interference of foreigners in this country, the stoppage and blockage of transit and transportation routes, and the spread of the Corona disease, each in turn. They played a big role in reducing Iran’s trade with this country. With the beginning of the 13th government, the relations between the two countries were strengthened, so that Iran’s exports to Damascus last year increased by 11% compared to 1400 and 147 thousand Iranian goods worth 243 million. A dollar was exported to Bazarsham. Meanwhile, in 1400, exports to this country had reached more than 218 million dollars, which proves a 100% growth compared to 1399, which is the last year of the 12th government.

Syrians are customers of which Iranian goods?
A look at Iran’s exports over the past years shows that Syrians are mostly interested in components and parts of steam turbines, all kinds of agricultural food products including dry milk, dairy products, fruits, tomatoes, pistachios, all kinds of medicine for human and animal use, all kinds of sealants and gaskets for light cars and Vans and finally types of iron and steel are interested. It is not bad to know that in addition to these products, there are also products such as medicines and medical equipment, urea fertilizers, valves, motor oils and industrial oils, detergents and sanitary products, and products such as petrochemical and petroleum products. , chemicals and minerals, solvents, building materials, yarn and fabric, rubber, board, paper and cardboard, ceramic tiles, shoes, glass and mirrors, all kinds of containers, locks, vehicle engines, chillers, elevators, industrial machinery, Household appliances, electronic appliances, tractors, sofas and all kinds of doors are easily exported to Syria.

Problems facing Iran-Syria trade
Syrian business officials believe that Iranian exporters have not been able to establish their brands in the Syrian market as much as they should, and that is why Turkey now exports goods to Syria eight times as much as Iran. It can easily export to this country. However, it seems that with the removal of banking barriers, the implementation of the free trade agreement and the solution of the transportation problem, achieving a trade of one billion dollars between Iran and Syria is not far from reach.

Export facilitation
In order to increase the trade between the two countries as much as possible, a conference is scheduled to be held on March 13 under the title of Syria’s market development and existing opportunities and the contribution of Iranian companies, with the presence of high-ranking officials of the two countries. In this regard, Abdul Amir Rabihawi, the Director General of the West Asia Office of the Trade Development Organization, says: Syria has one billion dollars of exports. and has five billion dollars in imports, and according to the policies aligned with Iran, this country can become one of our export target countries. Rabihawi said: Without a doubt, we will have the capacity to import goods from Syria to Iran, which can reduce the trade balance between the two countries to a minimum. We are also trying to open a way to export from Syria to other countries. He continued: Syria’s Latakia port in the Mediterranean Sea is an opportunity for exports to North African countries, and if we can activate Iran’s exports from Syria to other countries, we have reopened a trade advantage with Syria. The Director General of the West Asian Office of the Trade Development Organization emphasized on facilitating the trade process with Syria and stated: In the past, two routes were defined for exports to Syria; First, the goods were transferred from the land border to Turkey and from Mersin port in Turkey to Latakia. In the second case, the goods were loaded from Bandar Abbas and reached Syria through the Persian Gulf and the Black Sea. Both of these routes were long and expensive, but now, with the reopening of the Iraqi transit route, the goods will reach Syria in one day; Syrian and Iraqi trucks are ready to transport goods to Syria in Marzmehran. Referring to the free trade agreement, he said: the customs tariffs agreed with Syria have become zero tariffs and this is one of the advantages of trade with Syria. We have also reached agreements for currency exchange with Syria.
