He also said about the country’s railway fleet: “Despite the holidays, meetings with the Minister of Jihad for Agriculture and the Minister صمت We had to determine how we can equip the country’s railways with tractors and refrigerated wagons, etc., to expand our trade, and also to activate the north-south corridor; Because this event creates a multiplier capacity for the transfer of goods through transit for Iran.
The head of Iran Trade Development Organization called the third axis issues of financial exchange between countries and said: “Financial issues are of great importance, during which the Central Bank of Iran is pursuing and launching a financial network between Iran and Russia and obtaining quasi-guarantees.” الIs so that traders can be assured of the return of their currency.
