Iran-Syria Joint Chamber of Commerce is going to send a business delegation to Damascus for holding talks on export of Iranian cement to Syria. 

The delegation will take part in business forum in Damascus and hold B2B meetings with their Syrian counterparts.

The Iranian delegations include cement producers and suppliers of raw materials and reconstruction services of cement production line.

The visit is scheduled for 26-28 July.

Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture opened its trade center in Damascus with the aim of boosting exports to Syria in late 2020.

Iran has offered to help Syria rebuild its war-torn areas after years of conflict.

Syria and Iran concluded a free trade agreement in February 2012, which included reducing customs duties to 4% on goods traded between the two countries, cancelling all quantitative restrictions and lifting the ban on imports with similar effects.

The agreement came into force on March 12, 2012, and included an agreement to allow commercial trucks to pass between the two countries through Iraq.

Iran’s government, however, is trying to reduce customs tariffs on trade between Iran and Syria from the current 4% to zero.
