Iranian official: Improving transportation infrastructure needed for growth of trade relations

(MENAFN) The deputy chief of the Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) states improving transportation infrastructure is a requirement for the growth of trade relations between Iran and Namibia.

Speaking in a conference with Head of Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry Charity Mwale Mwiya in Tehran on Tuesday, Alireza Yavari voiced disappointment with the recent level of trade between both nations, stating: “The lack of transportation infrastructure between the two countries is the most important reason for the decrease in the level of trade relations between Iran and Namibia.”

According to the ICCIMA portal, Yavari pointed to pharmaceuticals, food industry, and agriculture as possible areas for collaboration between both nations, noting: “Since these areas are not affected by the U.S. sanctions, the chambers of commerce of Iran and Namibia can establish good business relations in these areas.”

Mwiya for her part uttered interest in using the experiences of Iranian firms in processing agricultural goods and said: “Namibia is one of the world’s top meat exporters and one of the successful countries in the field of fisheries and fish farming.”

“Iran and Namibia can also have good cooperation in the field of processing precious stones, including diamonds,” she also underlined.
