ArmInfo. Bahman Hosseinzadeh, Managing Director of the Iranian International Exhibition Company, announced that the first international exhibition of the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is planned to be held in Tehran.
Speaking on the sidelines of the ceremony marking the 23rd anniversary of National Export Day, Hosseinzadeh emphasized the important role of international exhibitions in increasing exports, reports the Tehran Times. <After the production of domestic products, these products should be brought to target markets, and international exhibitions both domestically and abroad will be very useful in this, "the official said. Emphasizing the fact that Iran is trying to increase the number of international exhibitions in accordance with the plan, Hosseinzadeh added: "Since export to neighboring countries is one of the main priorities of the Ministry of Industry, Mining and Trade, almost 40 international exhibitions were held this year> .
The Ministry of Industry also plans to provide the organizers of such exhibitors with the necessary financial assistance. "In general, exhibitions directly and indirectly contribute to the economic boom in the country," he said.In May 2018, the Eurasian Union and Iran signed an interim agreement on a free trade zone for a period of three years. The agreement provides for a reduction in customs duties on a number of goods, including 502 names of Iranian goods and 864 Eurasian ones. Of these, 10-12 products were included in the list at the suggestion of the Armenian government. At the same time, the parties will not only reduce duties, but also ease non-tariff customs barriers (import permits, requirements for certification of goods, and so on). This is especially true when exporting to Iran, where the authorities very tightly protect the domestic market.As a result, the EAEU countries will be able to more easily export beef and lamb, butter, mineral water, grains, as well as steel rolling, tractors, and buses to Iran. Iran, in turn, will be able to import figs and pistachios, shrimp, dishes and carpets into the EAEU more easily.
