Deputy Minister of Agricultural Jihad Mohammad-Ali Tahmasebi told IRNA here Tuesday that pistachio, fruits of cold regions, saffron and raisin are among important agricultural goods exported from the country.
Iran exported 803 million dollars worth of pistachio last year, showing a 60 percent increase compared to similar period of the previous year, he added.
He said Iran enjoys high potentials to export agricultural produce, noting support for producing units and export transportation terminals would boost the export of such goods.
