People like Nematzadeh and Shariatmadari, despite years of experience in the ministry, are still from the ministry. silence They left unsuccessfully, what about people who did not have the necessary experience, background and executive work at the macro level.
Board member Management The Chamber of Commerce of Iran and Iraq stated: Last year, with the import of 14 million inputs compared to the previous year, 4 million tons of animal feed was imported into the country, but we still could not supply the market. This lack of success in regulating the market was due to the lack of a structure called the Ministry of Commerce.

Hosseini said: We have involved the production units in the import and export of raw materials, but we have not achieved success either.
He added: In countries like China, Korea, and Japan, they do not allow the manufacturer to export at all, and commercial law firms do the export work. In a country like Japan, the majority of exports are carried out by a few large companies. In Korea, exports are also carried out by a few large commercial companies. It is done and this is while we have destroyed big commercial companies in our country and with an extreme view we have thought that we should give all the work to the producer.

Hosseini stated: If these goods are officially imported into the country and consultations are held with different countries for the import of these goods, it will not only generate income for the government through the payment of customs duties, but we can also buy market from them in exchange for the import of these goods to our country. and promoted exports.
He added: In exchange for the import of such goods, which are now being smuggled into the country, the export can be increased and instead of 48 billion dollars, it could be 60 or even 70 billion dollars.
Hosseini stated: Instead of the regulatory government importing quality goods from different countries, with the import ban, conditions have been provided for smugglers to import any low-quality goods into the country.
He criticized that part of the regulation of the market is now done by the Ministry of Agricultural Jihad and part by the Ministry silence And part of it is done by the Ministry of Cooperatives, he said: This is while the Ministry of Commerce should take over the regulation of the market.
He added: One of the tasks of the Ministry of Commerce is to be the gatekeeper of the country’s trade, while now the country’s trade does not have a guardian and there is no one to protect our markets.
