Iran has recently stopped exporting raw polymer materials to Armenia, which could negatively affect Armenia's food industry and agricultural sector, according to country's Union of Industrialists and entrepreneurs, Mediamax reported.
"Iran has stopped exports of some 52 items to foreign countries, as a result of which, the exports of raw polymer materials (Polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene) have been stopped as well. It would require 30-40 days to arrange imports of raw polymer materials from other countries, by a higher price, and that in turn would lead to overall increase of goods' prices," said the message of the Union.
The message of the Union also says that Armenian prime minister Tigran Sarkisyan has been informed of this problem, and asked by the union to find a solution to this problem, by talking it over with relevant officials from Iran.
