TEHRAN (FNA)- The Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration (IRICA) announced that exports of non-oil goods from the country increased by 6.2 percent in the first 11 months of the current Iranian year (March 20, 2020-February 21, 2021).

"The total value of non-oil exports from Iran in the 11th month of the current Iranian year had reached $3.135 billion, up by $184 million against the previous month," IRICA Spokesman Rouhollah Latifi said.

He pointed out that the total value of non-oil exports from Iran for the 11-month period between late March last year and late February this year had amounted to $31.198 billion.

China remained the top importer of Iranian goods over the same month with $845 million worth of purchases, followed by Iraq at $477 million and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at $441 million.

The three countries along Afghanistan and Turkey accounted for 70 percent of all purchases in value terms and 60 percent of the weight of the export cargoes, said Latifi.

In a relevant development earlier today, it was announced that the export value of Iranian mining and minerals in the first 10 months of the current Iranian year (March 20, 2020-January 21, 2021) hit more than $5.612 billion.

Steel ingot and products, copper cathode and aluminum ingot accounted for the maximum export share in the mining and mineral industrial sector in this period.
