TEHRAN- As announced by a provincial official, 267,000 tons of non-oil products valued at $112.8 million have been exported from Golestan province, in the northeast of Iran, during the past Iranian calendar year (ended on March 20).
Ebrahim Hosseini, the director-general of the province’s customs department, said that the value and weight of the exported products show 19 percent and 25 percent fall, respectively, on an annual basis.

Mehdi Mir-Ashrafi also put the weight of non-oil trade at 146.4 million tons, and said that the figure shows a 25-million-ton annual decline, which is the result of sanctions and coronavirus pandemic.
