Trade between Iran, Tajikistan growing

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Trade and economic cooperation between Iran and Tajikistan are currently reflecting a growing trend following five years of decline, which led to a significant decrease in the two countries’ transactions with each other. Speaking to Iran Daily in an exclusive interview, Mohammad-Kazem Shirdel, the vice president of Iran-Tajikistan Chamber of Commerce, added trade transactions between the two countries have increased by up to 40 percent since the beginning of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2019). A political reason started the downward trend in trade between the two countries in 2015 after causing tensions in relations between Tehran and Dushanbe.
