Iran to help Lebanon expand its carpet exports
Jun '12
Iran National Carpet Centre has inked a deal with the Lebanese Union of Handmade Carpet Traders for developing Lebanon as a centre for exporting handmade carpets to western Middle East and northern Africa,
The aim of the agreement is to help Lebanese carpet traders expand their markets in Jordan, Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria and Syria.
During the last Iranian calendar year that ended on March 19, 2012, Iran exported handmade carpets worth over US$ 560 million to 80 countries. 
The value of carpet exports from Iran increased by 0.8 percent during last year, over previous year. However, the export volumes plummeted by 15.4 percent year-on-year, as per the Customs Administration statistics.
Germany, UAE and Italy imported Iranian carpets worth US$ 107.9 million, US$ 102 million and US$ 29.9 million, respectively during last year.
Japan, Brazil, Pakistan, Qatar, Sweden, Britain and Denmark were other countries that imported Iranian handmade carpets during last year.
For the current year, Iran has set a target of exporting US$ 1 billion worth of carpets.
