TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- Iran's President Ayatollah Dr. Seyed Ebrahim Raisi inaugurated the 5th edition of Iran Expo 2023, a four-day exhibition of Iran's export capabilities, on Sunday at the Tehran International Exhibition Center.

The event, which runs until May 10, features more than 750 domestic companies and representatives from 60 countries, covering 12 specialized fields such as food, agriculture, industry, medicine, petrochemicals, and tourism.

According to the president, Iran has set a 40-year-old record by registering more than $50 billion dollars in exports since the beginning of his administration in August 2021. He attributed this achievement to the efforts of Iranian economic activists and businessmen who have overcome the challenges of sanctions and the Covid-19 pandemic.

He also announced the activation of Iran's commercial offices in other countries to better introduce the scientific and economic capabilities of the Islamic Republic of Iran. He said that one of the main tasks of these offices is to facilitate trade relations between Iranian and foreign entrepreneurs.

The president emphasized that Iran has not tied its economic growth and production to political negotiations with the West over its nuclear program. He said that Iran has followed the negotiation from a position of honor and dignity, while the US has violated its commitments and pulled out of the nuclear deal.

He added that Iran has made significant progress in various fields of science and technology, such as health, medicine, steel, petrochemicals, defense, and nuclear industries. He said that Iran's products can compete with those of other countries in the region and the world.

The Iranian president expressed hope that the Iran Expo 2023 exhibition would create a good opportunity for mutual understanding and cooperation between Iranian and foreign economic actors. He also urged all ministries and agencies to support exports and production in the country.

The Iran Expo 2023 exhibition is one of the largest trade events in the Middle East, aiming to create global export markets for Iranian goods and services, especially those with more added value and knowledge-based. The exhibition also hosts 70 business and government delegations consisting of more than 1,200 businessmen and government officials from all over the world.
