Head of Iran Combine Manufacturing Company Ali-Asghar Hamidifar said that $500,000 worth of his company’s products were exported to Iraq, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Armenia, reported Fars News Agency.
He added that $390,000 was related to combine and the remaining was due to the export of other parts including bailers.
Despite some economic problems, the company has held talks with the neighboring countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Tajikistan and Azerbaijan, he noted.
Hamidifar added that the company has put on the agenda manufacturing 450 combines and 400 bailers.
Back in August, senior Iranian and Armenian officials in a meeting in Yerevan signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to broaden mutual cooperation between the two countries in the agriculture sector.
The MoU was signed in a ceremony attended by the Iranian and Armenian deputy agriculture and economy ministers.
Iran and Armenian agreed to jointly manufacture agricultural machinery.
Meantime, Iran’s cultural attaché in Armenia said that the Armenian Fund for Developing Business and an Iranian company have undertaken the responsibility of joint manufacturing.
Mohsen Rahimi said that based on the agreement, the Iranian company will export all types of agricultural machinery parts to Armenia and will assemble them in the country.
The Armenian Fund for Developing Business cooperates with the Iranian company in the field of easing administrative procedures, participation in exhibitions and commercial events, technical assistance and information dissemination.
Iran plans to export CKD parts worth $1 million to Armenia to put them together there.
The Iranian company also plans to export parts to other Eurasian member states.
