The Director General of the Ports and Maritime Organization, stating that one of the important opportunities for trade exchanges with Central Asian countries is the capacity of commercial ports in the northern strip of Iran, said: “this organization has a special focus on developing infrastructure, superstructures and equipment of Anzali Port.”

According to the Public Relations of the Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, Mohammad Rastad on the sidelines of the Eurasian Economic Union Conference stated that today, 11 development projects in Anzali Port will be put into operation or their executive operations will begin. He added: "Of these projects, 4 projects have been invested by the private sector, which is worth over 800 billion rials, and the remaining 900 billion rials have been invested by the Ports and Maritime Organization."

He noted: "We have been able to create good and ideal conditions in terms of infrastructure, superstructures and port equipment in the coastal strip of the country."

Referring to the annual capacity of 246 million tons of commercial ports in the country, the Director General of the Ports and Maritime Organization said: "Through commercial ports in the north and south of Iran, we can see the development of trade and transit with Central Asian countries in the near future."

Referring to the cruel and illegal sanctions imposed on Iran, Rastad said: "These sanctions are completely contrary to the international conventions of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and Iran has always protested in the international community."

Referring to Iran's trade capacity and this fact that the country's navy is among the top 20 in the world, he said: "Considering the capabilities and potentials of commercial ports in terms of accepting all kinds of goods and ships, we have been able to limit the resulting conditions."

The Deputy Minister of Roads and Urban Development announced a 10% increase in loading and unloading in the country's commercial ports despite the toughest sanctions and noted: "So far this year, we have loaded and unloaded 700 million tons, and fortunately, exports, imports and transit through ports have continued.”
