Monthly exports 30% down
Although monthly exports declined by around 30% in July, the performance was not that bad. According to official customs statistics Iran shipped 6,499 mt of dates worth USD 4.87 million in July. While this ranges 30% lower in terms of weight and 27% lower in terms of value than the 9,229 mt worth USD 6.66 million exported in June, the annual comparison shows a different picture.
