Iran has planned to expand its carpet export markets in countries such as Russia, Malaysia, South Africa and China, according to Iran National Carpet Center (INCC).
 
The INCC has also announced plans for increasing exports of carpets to countries like Qatar and the UAE, reports Tehran Times.
 
According to data released by INCC, Iran has exported around €24.9 million worth of handmade carpets to the European Union during the first half of the current Iranian year that began on March 21, 2013.
 
Countries such as Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, and the UK were the main European importers of Iran's handmade carpets during the six-month period.
 
Iranian carpets constitute 35 percent of the global carpet trade.
 
The exports of handwoven carpets fetched US$ 427 million for Iran, during the last Iranian calendar year.
 
Over 1.2 million weavers in Iran engage in carpet weaving and produce around five million square metres of carpets each year, 80 percent of which are exported.
