Armenia to elaborate strategy of export of food and agricultural products to Iran

ArmInfo. Armenia will elaborate  a strategy of export of food and agricultural products to Iran.  Armenian Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan voiced the relevant  instruction at the Government's session on November 18.  

Karapetyan instructed the minister of economic development and  investments to prepare proposals on creation of a working group with  the ministries of foreign affairs, healthcare, and agriculture within  5 days, and then to negotiate with the Iranian side to ensure all  necessary solutions and creation of institutional structures to  facilitate the entry of Armenian products to the Iranian market. The  head of the working group is to present the progress report before  December 25.      

He noted that the share of Armenian products on the Iranian market is  tiny. The market itself dictates the requirements and criteria for  the participants, he added. "I think in case of efficient work we  will be able to have a large share on that market," he stressed.  Karapetyan also instructed the structures concerned to discuss with  businessmen possible opening of a free economic area near the Iranian  border.  

Earlier, ex-Prime Minister of Armenia Hovik Abrahamyan stated that  creating FEZ in Meghri was a very important program, which would open  up new opportunities for development of our economy. At the same  time, he noted that the program was vital from the point of regional  development as well.  "Development of provinces is one of our  priorities, and a new free economic zone will boost development of  Meghri. New job places will open, new prospects will appear",  Abrahamyan noted. According to him, due to the program Iran will  receive an opportunity to open joint ventures with the Eurasian  Economic Union member states in the FEZ of Meghri and to enjoy  duty-free export of products to the EEU.
