Tehran, Iran, March 11
Iran has imported 10,000 containers of auto parts in its free zones, meanwhile the importers of tires and auto spare parts are exempted from registration process.
The Secretary of the Supreme Council of Iran's Free Trade Zones Morteza Bank has noted that due to government approval, the imported goods and auto parts can arrive at the country's free zone depots without formal registration process, Trend reports citing ILNA.
Referring to the depot of basic goods at country's free zones, he said that there are no considerable amounts of these goods at the depots.
"The Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade should make an effort to facilitate the imports of basic goods and raw materials, free zones are not the policy makers in this field," he said.
He indicated that 3,200 items of imported goods have been exempted from registration process in the free zones, in order to facilitate their releases.
"According to government approval, the goods and raw materials that were imported without official foreign currency rate and registering orders, can be stored at free zones until the importers complete the releasing process," he explained.
