On the sidelines of visiting the Anzali Port Complex, the deputy chairman of the economic commission of the parliament emphasized on more use of Anzali port and said: with the plans made, the north-south and east-west corridors will become more active and Anzali Port Complex will play a significant role in them.

According to the public relations of the Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, Seyed Ehsan Khandozi, Deputy Chairman of the Economic Commission of the Majles, on the afternoon of Thursday, November 6, on the sidelines of a visit to the Anzali Port Complex, stated: “One of the referral bills of the Economic Commission of the parliament that remained from the tenth term was the bill of Anzali Free Zone. This zone was visited today to have a better field and operational understanding about this bill.”

He added: "better awareness of the capacities and potentials of Anzali port complex and other economic situations that are connected and dependent on this port was another goal of this visit."

Referring to the very good position of Anzali Port in the region, the Deputy Chairman of the Parliament's Economic Commission stated: "there is a good economic capacity in this region, but other executive bodies create obstacles that do not allow full exploitation of the region's economic potential."

Khandouzi stated that after returning from this trip, appropriate planning and measures will be taken to remove these obstacles. He added: "One of the very strategic potentials of the Anzali port complex is to use the trade capacities of the Caspian Sea to overcome the oppressive sanctions. However, this potential has not been used properly and less than one tenth of the potential capacity of Anzali Port Complex is being used, while there is a good and high potential in this area.”

He considered it necessary to use Anzali port more efficiently and said: "We can organize a part of the future trade of the country instead of southern ports from northern ports such as Anzali port complex."

The deputy chairman of the parliament's economic commission continued: "Moving the country's trade hotspots from south to north or designing a common transit route that can activate the north-south corridor and even the east-west corridor should be on the agenda. With the potentials of Anzali Port Complex, it can play a good role in both corridors.”

Criticizing the lack of attention and shortcomings of the Trade Development Organization and other relevant agencies in order to develop exports and imports, Khandouzi acknowledged: "Unfortunately, there has been a lot of shortcomings about the capacities of trade parties across the Caspian Sea."

Stating that we can plan and do other good things now, he said. "We can trade with the export sectors of Russia and Kazakhstan and turn Anzali industrial areas into a place to import raw materials and produce added value."
