The Iranian FARS news agency reports that former Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qassemi (pictured), who is now in charge of an economic body charged with improving Iran-Iraq trade ties, said Iran can double its non-oil exports to Iraq to $30 billion.
Addressing a Joint Iran-Iraq Trade Conference in Tehran on Tuesday, Qassemi said that Iraq currently accounts for about $15 billion in non-oil trade, about half of Iran’s total non-oil sales.
He also said that Tehran and Baghdad plan to set up a joint office for Iran-Iraq trade transactions within the next two to three months.
