Iran has exported $1.24 billion worth of commodities to Afghanistan since the beginning of the current Iranian year (March 21, 2019) to top the list of world exporters to the neighboring country.

Hasibullo Movahed, an official with the Central Statistical Organization of Afghanistan, added that Afghanistan mainly imports oil products, machinery, edible oil, textile products, metal products and electricity, Mehr News Agency reported.

This is while Iran mainly exports low-density oils, iron/steel bars and floorings to Afghanistan.

“Afghanistan has imported $8.3 billion worth of goods in the current Iranian year, witnessing an over 8% decline compared with last year’s corresponding period,” Movahed said.
