Middle East region's share in global LNG exports will improve by 2025 after a drop in 2020, driven by enhanced production in Qatar and Iran, according to Doha-based Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF).
European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said trade between Iran and Europe increased 94 percent in the first half of 2017, compared to the first half of 2016, after the signing of the 2015 nuclear deal.
Over 6.05 million tons of goods were transited through Iran in the first eight months of the current Iranian year (March 21-Nov. 22), Reza Nafisi, an official with Iran Road Maintenance & Transportation Organization (RMTO), said.
Iran's non-oil foreign trade during the eight months from March 21 to November 21 reached $60.9 billion, indicating a growth of eight percent compared to $56.4 billion for the corresponding period last year.
More than 4.07 million passengers were transferred via Iranian airports in the month to October 22 indicating a growth of six percent against the figure for the same month in 2016, according to Iran Airports Company (IAC).
