Iran exports agricultural equipment to Tanzania

Iran's northern Mazandaran province exported a third cargo of home-made agricultural machinery to Africa in late December 2011, a trade official has announced

"The cargo which was worth over US$90,000 was exported to Tanzania from Babolsar city yesterday," said Deputy Head of the Industry, Mine and Trade Organisation of Mazandaran province for Foreign Trade, Mehdi Golchoub.

According to Golchoub, the cargo included different machineries, including tractors, ploughs and spare parts. He further described the African countries, specially Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, as proper destination markets for export of different types of Iranian agricultural machineries. "These markets are highly suitable for export of different types of agricultural machineries and also engineering and technical services," he said.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's administration has striven hard to maximise relations with the African continent. Iran is also an observing member of the AU and has shown an active presence in previous AU summit meetings. The country is considered as one of the AU's strategic partners along with India, Japan, China, several South American states and Turkey, while Tehran is also believed to be prioritising promotion of its economic and political ties with the African states.
