The Syrian-Iranian Business Opportunities and Approaches Forum started activities on Monday at the Iranian Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture in Tehran.
The Forum will tackle several issues that would reflect positively on increasing the Syrian-Iranian exports, including the cancellation of customs duties on the goods exported to Syria which stand at 4 percent, in addition to reducing the ban on exporting 80 commodities to one-third.
A number of Iranian officials attended the opening of the forum, including the head of Iran’s Trade Promotion Organization (TPO) Hamid Zadboum and the head of the Joint Syrian-Iranian Chamber of Commerce Kiwan Kashfi.
The Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture has opened a trade center in Damascus, and permanent exhibitions showcasing some commodities with the intention to create a business environment for exporters.
