Iran, Oman to launch new shipping route

A senior trade official announced that a new shipping route between Iran's Khorramshahr Port and Oman’s Sohar Port will be launched on December 30.

"The Iran-Oman Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mining and Agriculture identifies the obstacles and provides the infrastructure for developing exports between the two countries,” Chairman of Iran-Oman Joint Chamber of Commerce Mosen Zarrabi was quoted as saying by Fars News Agency.

He noted that another route between Chabahar and Sohar will be launched in the near future.

"According to our agreements with the Oman Free Trade Zones Organization, Iranian companies can register a company in the country without the need to export goods," Zarabi said.

"We have also signed a memorandum of understanding with the Sohar Free Trade Zone which will increase the volume of Iran's date export to the country to 300,000 tons a year if implemented," he added.

In relevant remarks in June, Iranian Ambassador to Oman Mohammad Reza Nouri Shahroudi and Chairman of Oman's State Council Yahya bin Mahfoudh al-Mantheri in a meeting discussed ways to broaden bilateral ties.

During the meeting in Muscat, Nouri Shahroudi and Yahya reviewed the ways to expand parliamentary relations between the two countries' parliaments.

The two sides stressed that the long-standing relations between Iran and Oman are an indication of wisdom and prudence of the two countries' senior officials.
