Mirashrafi, Director General of Customs:
More than a quarter of the world’s products are in the trade cycle.
The present century is the century of Asia and the 10 largest ports in the world in Asia.
Our country has one percent of the population and one percent of the land, and we have seven and a half percent of the world’s resources. So we have a lot of resources for our population.
More than 90% of the world’s trade is through open waters. In the 1940s, a study was conducted in Iran, which resulted in two recommendations: Iran, along with seven and a half percent of its resources, has one of the best geopolitical plans that a “free port” should be created in this country. The second recommendation is to create a transit city in the center of Iran and make a profit from the transit of travelers in the region.
Unfortunately, we also give our opportunities to others. The UAE, despite not having conditions similar to Iran at all, dumps 14 million containers a year at its water borders. In the discussion of passenger transit, which has a much higher hand. Turkey, which has the largest passenger transit center in the world.
A current study by the Mackenzie Foundation says the center of gravity of the world economy will be at the junction of China and India. It is projected that in 2035 China’s GDP will be equal to that of the United States, and in 2050 it will have $ 4 trillion more than the United States. Therefore, countries close to the China-India pipeline can benefit from transit. This will be a great opportunity for our country that we must seize this time.
If we want to value the private sector, we must know that the current world is not a world of sanctions. The world without borders today is not a buyer of sanctions
In the supply chain management discussion, several projects are underway that will be announced
We had $ 44 billion in exports, 50% of which were for non-oil products, and polymers It accounts for 7% of our non-oil exports
What is right Petrochemical and Polymer is not achieved / The average of each kilogram of our export goods is 38 cents, which indicates the sale of raw materials. With the help of craftsmen, we can sell raw materials. Let’s escape, of course, if you can escape from customs and trade!
We are ready for exporters to help us in the discussion of adjusting and realizing export prices
