According to a resolution obtained by the National Association from the Customs Valuation Committee, last week during a special meeting with representatives of four specialized organizations in the plastics industry (Pipe and Fittings Association PVC , Association of Disposable Tableware Manufacturers Polymer , UA Profile Manufacturers Association PVC and Geosynthetics Association Iran) examined the customs values ​​of various plastic products to send to the customs and other relevant organizations for collection. In this meeting, the prices of different products of all types of plastic products were categorized and examined and their real prices were determined.

It is expected that with the recent stability in the exchange rate and economic conditions of the country, the first six months of 1998 will have more export figures than the $ 982 million in the first six months of 1997. Of course, this will be important in the shadow of reforming the foreign exchange contracting formula.
