Keyvan Kashefi, chairman of the Iran-Syria Joint Chamber and a board member of the Iranian Chamber of Commerce, announced a 60% increase in trade between the two countries over the past year and said: This volume of trade is not the maximum level of the two countries' goals, but we plan to reach the volume of one billion dollars a year. Fortunately, some of the demands such as facilitating the traders’ commutation between the two countries have been met in this direction and other expectations are about to be investigated.


Stating that the private sector's welcome for the expansion of cooperation is very high, he highlighted: We need a real accelerator in this direction and it is to resolve the situation of preferential tariffs. There should be a review in this regard to enhance the level of relations.

This economic activist also considered the agricultural sector as one of the suitable grounds for cooperation between the economic actors of the two countries and criticized the neglect of the issue.

In this regard, he called on Iranian economic activists to be in constant contact with the Iran-Syria Joint Chamber and to receive the necessary guidance on effective presence in this market, since he believes that we can take over the regional market and use the existing capacity and to take optimal advantage of it by a joint production.
