As to the significance of the conference in developing trade and economic relationship between Uzbekistan and Iran, the Iranian official noted that Uzbekistan is one of the important and target states in terms of export destination of Iranian commodities.
Iran’s exports to Uzbekistan have witnessed a growth in recent months, Karimzadeh said.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Economic Diplomacy Mehdi Safari said on February 17 that the Islamic Republic is going to hold two joint economic commissions with Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan in Tehran in coming days separately.
It is expected that holding such joint economic commissions will help sign promising agreements for future cooperation in different fields, Safari noted.
According to the deputy foreign minister, an expertise delegation will visit Tehran to discuss collaborations with officials in Iran’s agriculture sector.
