TEHRAN, Aug.27(MNA) – Director general of the West Asia Department of the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran (TPOI) has said that Iran's exports to West Asia hit $7.2 billion in the first four months of the current Iranian year (March 21-July 22).

Farzad Piltan said on Sunday that $7.2 billion in goods weighing 20,850 million tons were exported from Iran to West Asia during the first four months, showing an increase of around 3.8 million tons in weight and $3 million in value compared to the same period in the last year.

During the said period, Iran's total export to West Asia was 45.4 percent which shows 4.4 percent YOY growth, he added.

The main destinations in West Asia for the Iranian exported goods were China, Iraq, Turkey, and UAE.
