EU-Iran Foreign Trade from January to October up 16.6 Bil­li­on Euro

Italy was the most important EU- trade partner of Iran, with a trade volume of 4.0 billion Euro, followed by France (3.2 bn Euro) and Germany  (2.7 bn Euro).

From January to October 2017 the European Union (EU28) export of goods to Iran stood at € 8,407 mn, an increase of 32% compared with the first ten month in 2016.  According to the la­test (preliminary) data by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, 28% of the EU-ex­ports to Iran came from Germany, which delivered goods worth € 2,354 mn, that was 19% more than in the first ten month of the year 2016.  Second (16%) was Italy with exports worth € 1,379 mn (+14%), followed by France (€ 1,176 mn, +119%).   

January to October 2017 the 28 EU countries imported goods worth  € 8.241 bn from Iran, (an increase of 109% compared with the first ten month of 2016).  With the removal of most of the sanctions at the end of January 2016, Iran again started the export of oil to Europe.  That is the reason for the high growth rates in Iranian exports to some EU countries.  Major Iranian ex­ports to the European Union  go to Italy, which imported goods worth € 2,584 mn from Iran (+315%) and France (€ 2,010 mn, + 109%).  Germany holds 6th place with imports worth 307 mil­­lion Euro (+27%).   http://marin-consult.com


Italy Tops Iran’s Trade Partners in Europe

Tehran (FT):   Italy tops the list of Iran’s biggest export destinations in the EU, as it imported €2.2 billion worth of Iranian commodities during Jan.-Sept.  Germany was the biggest Euro­pe­an exporter to Iran during the period, shipping €2.12 billion worth of goods.

The latest Eurostat data shared with Financial Tribune show Italy was Iran's biggest trade part­ner in the European Union during the nine months ending September 2017, with bilateral trade reaching €3.45 billion.  Eurostat is the Directorate-General of the European Commission located in Luxembourg. Its main responsibilities are to provide statistical information to European Uni­on institutions and promote the harmonization of statistical methods across its member states and candidates for accession as well as among the European Free Trade Association countries.  The data also indicate that Italy tops the list of Iran’s biggest export destinations in the EU, as it im­ported €2.2 billion worth of Iranian commodities during the period.  France was Iran's second biggest trade partner in the EU, as the two countries exchanged €2.93 billion worth of goods du­­ring the nine months. Exports from Iran accounted for €1.87 billion of the total.  Germany was next with €2.41 billion worth of trade with Iran. The European country was, in fact, the big­gest European exporter to Iran during the period under review, shipping €2.12 billion worth of goods.  Iran’s fourth biggest trade partner in the EU was Spain. Bilateral trade stood at $1.234 bil­li­on with Iran's exports accounting for $957.9 million.  The Netherlands followed with €1.15 bil­lion worth of trade with the Islamic Republic. Iran exported nearly €597.92 million worth of goods to this country and imported close to €553.72 million in return.

Close to €14.78 billion worth of commodities were exchanged between Iran and all European Uni­on states during the nine months, about 1.6 times as much as the figure registered in last year's corresponding period. Iran’s exports to the 28 European countries stood at €7.3 billion, registering a more than twofold rise year-on-year. Iran's imports from the European bloc amoun­ted to €7.5 billion, which is 1.3 times as much as last year’s similar period.

European traders and businesses have been at the forefront of resuming ties with Iran after it signed a nuclear deal with world powers in 2015, which led to the removal of nuclear-related sanc­tions against the Islamic Republic.
