The exports trend of wheat, Ghonji added, will be put in place gradually and to different destinations; and in line with this policy, the first exported wheat cargo of Iran left Imam Khomeini (PBUH) Port to Oman .
According to Ghonji, the volume of the first exported wheat cargo was 30 thousand tons, and the IRISL Bulk Division sent out Artin Ship to transfer this cargo. Today, the embarking of this cargo was finally completed and Artin set off to Oman.
IRISL Bulk Division director held this exports in very high regards, and asserted that exporting this cargo was a large step on the path to reach Iran’s macro-strategies, and as well, it was a leaping move forward toward executing the agendas that Iran’s supreme leader has set for 2017: Resistance economy, production and creating job opportunities.
In the end, Ghonji expressed that IRISL Bulk Division is fully prepared to export all Iranian products through maritime routes.
