TEHRAN (FNA)- Afghanistan has imported more than $1 billion worth of goods from Iran since the beginning of the current Iranian year (March 21, 2021), a senior Afghan trade official said.
"Afghan merchants have imported more than $1 billion worth of goods from Iran since Norouz," Deputy head of Afghanistan's Chamber of Commerce and Investment Younis Momand said.
He, meantime, said that Afghanistan has exported $800 million worth of goods to Iran in the same period.
Momand said that Afghan businessmen mostly export precious stones, dried fruits, hides, cotton, apricots and some other fresh fruits to Iran.
The Afghan economic official added that the Afghan merchants mostly import electrical appliances, raw materials for production, petroleum products and foodstuffs from Iran.
The Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Investment authorities say that the trade between Iran and Afghanistan has returned to normal after a halt amid the takeover of the Afghan cities and the capital by the Taliban.
