Director of Business Services of the Trade Promotion Organization says trade balance has improved in the first six month of the current year.

Seyed Hossein Hosseini who was speaking in meeting to celebrate the National Exports Day in southern province of Hormuzgan told reporters that Iran's trade balance had hit a positive level of plus 2. "The value of exported goods has improved, with China being the first destination for our exports and Iraq is the second destination for much of the exported goods,” he said.

"The new government has taken steps to improve the business and trade; sustainable economic growth and non-oil exports are the two important objectives of the past and present governments, and they constitute components of the development of any country,” Hosseini asserted, which he believed, in development plans of the country, had been lent a prominent place.

"In line with objectives set in Resistance Economy, the government had worked out 45 plans, of which 17 were in non-oil exports; a very emancipating measure by the government was to remove customs barriers on exports, which produced skyrocketing of exports since then,” he told the meeting.

"Removing bans on the exported goods is another measure worthy of appreciation to facilitate the export process; the government revived Supreme Exports Council, which in the past governments had fallen to desuetude,” Hosseini said, and that "the Council now meets with president's first deputy attending every three months.”
