The Eurasian Economic Union, which has recognized Iran’s membership since November 2009, has introduced some of the country’s new trading partners in recent months. However, sanctions on Iran and Eurasia are still subject to sanctions due to sanctions, the corona, and some restrictions on bilateral relations. It is minimal.
Estimates from the Tehran Chamber of Commerce show that in the first quarter of 1400, Iran exported $ 258 million worth of goods to Eurasia and imported $ 347 million worth of goods from these countries to keep the country’s trade balance negative. Iran’s exports to Asia accounted for only 2.4 percent of its total exports, and Iran accounted for 3.3 percent of its total imports from these countries. Russia still has the largest share among the main partners in Eurasia. Iran exports $ 135 million of its total exports to Eurasia to Russia, followed by Armenia with $ 60 million, Kazakhstan with $ 38 million, Kyrgyzstan with $ 18 million, and Belarus with $ 5 million.
Among the main exporters of goods to Iran, however, Russia alone has almost all the statistics and during this period has given $ 321 million to Iran. Iran’s total imports from other Eurasian countries do not even reach $ 30 million.
A study of Iran’s exports to Russia and other Eurasian countries shows that edible fruits had the largest share with $ 95 million. Among them, Iranian pistachios with fresh skin were the most popular product. Plastics, vegetables, cast iron, iron, and steel are also Iran’s exports to Eurasia.
In contrast, animal or vegetable fats and oils are the highest imports of Iran, followed by cereals, wood, vegetables, and mineral chemical products are the main imports of Iranian goods from Eurasia.
