“Today, we have gained $42.5 billion from non-oil exports which is the result of targeted planning in different economic and export fields,” Khosrotaj said.
He said total activities carried out in the country in the past years in the field of export development have been in line with the promotion of products and reaching self-sufficiency, Fars News Agency reported.
In January, Iranian First Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri underscored the necessity for cutting dependence on oil revenues and increasing exports of non-oil products.
“Special increase in the volume of non-oil exports constitutes the government’s most important approach,” Jahangiri said.
“To reach this goal, any obstacle on the way of the Iranian exporters should be removed in addition to granting special facilities to non-oil exports,” he added.
