“These investments have been made to set up projects in the fields of flour and fuel storages and a wood processing unit. These projects have made between 30-40% progress so far and will create 500 jobs when completed,” Siyavash Rezvani was also quoted as saying by IRNA.

During the period, the main exported product from Amirabad Port was construction material and the main imported commodities were raw material for wood processing units, fuel and raw material for industrial firms.
