Iranian Western Province Ups Non-Oil Exports by 19%

TEHRAN (FNA)- The value of non-oil exports from Iran's Western province of Hamedan has witnessed a 19% increase this Iranian year (started on March 20, 2012), a senior provincial trade official announced on Saturday.



Head of Industry, Mine and Trade Organization of Hamedan Province Mohammad Mehdi Farshchi Movahhed told FNA that his province has exported $60.9mln worth of non-oil products this year, adding that the figure shows a 19% growth compared with the same period last year.

He added that Hamedan's products have been exported to 26 countries, including Britain, German, Canada, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Netherland, Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Russia, Turkmenistan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, UAE, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Ethiopia and Kenya.

Last month, a senior Iranian official underlined Tehran's intention to further reduce its dependence on oil revenues, and said the country is exporting its non-oil products to over 149 world states now.

Iranian officials have underlined that the country plans to increase its non-oil exports to over $70bln in the current Iranian year.

Late in December 2011, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lauded the country's growing non-oil exports, and said Iran's non-oil exports would equal its imports in the current Iranian year.

"God willing, non-oil exports will equal (Iran's) imports by the end of 1391 (march 19, 2013)," he said, adding, "That would be a great revolution in the country's economy."
