Iran Customs, Eurasia Union expand trade partnerships

The Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration (IRICA), in cooperation with the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union, provides maximum facilities to member states.

(SHADA: TEHRAN) -- At the Eurasia Week Conference held in Kyrgyzstan, Mehdi Mirashrafi, head of the Customs Administration of Iran, said: Increasing trade between the member states of the Economic Union and providing customs facilities are two major objectives of Iran's customs.

The Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has a positive view on enhancing trade with neighboring countries, including members of the Eurasian Economic Union, and there are no restrictions in this regard, Mirashrafi stressed.

Increasing and enhancing the level of trade between member states and providing maximum facilities in cooperation with member states' customs is one of the customs plans of Iran in this union, he added.

"Member states should work together to maximize the benefits of this alliance and take steps to facilitate trade and increase the volume of trade."

He further stated that by removing the tariff restrictions, which includes 500 items, Iran has tried to facilitate trade.

At the conference, which was attended by the heads of economic activists such as the heads of Kyrgyzstan's trade unions, Mirashrafi said: Member states should make the most of the benefits by resolving customs problems and restrictions.

It is worth noting that the Chairman of the Iranian Chamber of Commerce, the Deputy Director of Customs Affairs of Iran and the Director General of the International Cooperation Office also attended the conference.
