TEHRAN (Iran News) – The head of Iran’s Trade Promotion Organization (TPO) has announced the beginning of drafting a comprehensive economic cooperation document between the Islamic Republic and Turkmenistan, IRIB reported on Sunday.
Referring to the holding of the 17th Iran-Turkmenistan Joint Economic Committee meeting in Ashgabat and the visit of the Iranian delegation to Turkmenistan, Mehdi Zeyghami said: “This trip was very fruitful because the minister of foreign affairs of Turkmenistan and the Iranian head of the joint committee are working to create a comprehensive economic and trade document between the two countries.”
According to Zeyghami, the Islamic Republic is going to dispatch a commercial attaché to Turkmenistan over the next four months to pursue the drafting of the mentioned document.
Saying that last year $500 million of trade exchange was done between Iran and Turkmenistan, the official noted: “This year we will witness the same amount of trade between the two countries, and according to the agreements made, there is a possibility of significant growth in trade exchange.”
He further referred to Turkmenistan’s interest in participating in Iran’s specialized exhibitions, saying: “The two countries have good interactions in the field of construction materials and technical and engineering services, but there is no extensive interaction in other specialized fields such as industrial machinery, knowledge-based industries, and medical equipment, and the visit of Turkmen companies to Iranian exhibitions will create the opportunity for such interactions.”
