IRAN: Statistics show Azerbaijan & Afghanistan bests markets from garmets exports

TEHRAN: Iran exported $37 million worth of garments during March-August, reported local news agencies.

According to latest statistics released by Iranís Customs Administration, some $23.2 million of the total was exported to Azerbaijan Republic and Afghanistan alone.

Azerbaijan purchased $14.7 million worth of garments from Iran in the period, when Afghanistan bought $8.5 million, Kyrgyzstan imported $3.3 million, Kazakhstan $2.8 million and Georgia $2.1 million.

Garment exports declined in the period by 10.5 percent against the figure for the corresponding period last year.

Textile exports reached $81 million in the period, down by 12 percent.

Iranís customs chief said here on Tuesday that customs offices nationwide have been directed to prevent the import of sub-standard Chinese garments.

Massoud Karbassian, who heads Iranís Customs Administration, told ISNA that the administration is working closely with Textile Mills Syndicate to prevent the import of low-quality textiles.

Chinese companies were barred from showcasing their products at a recent international textile exhibition in Tehran.

Iran-China Chamber of Commerce announced last week that preventing import of Chinese products is not the proper thing to do, stressing that the two countriesí officials need to discuss ways of importing quality products from China.

The worldís most populous nation invested over $50 billion in its textile industries in 2003, whereas Iran has so far not invested more than $250 million in the business, it said.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is the main source for smuggling substandard Chinese goods into Iran, it pointed out.
