Some 80 million tons of construction materials are produced in Iran per year which is nearly twice as much as the domestic requirements, ISNA quoted Mohammad-Jafar Montazeri, chairman of the union of Iranian construction materials producers, as saying.

Some 45 million tons of the domestically produced construction materials is used inside the country, he added.

Almost 10 million tons of construction materials are exported annually, mainly to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Persian Gulf littoral states, he noted.
