Iran eases rules on exports of handwoven carpets

Head on Iran National Carpet Center (INCC) announced that the government has eased its rules on exports of handwoven carpets amid efforts to generate more hard currency revenues from the sector.
Farahnaz Rafe’ said that the Iranian government will no longer require carpet exporters to supply their export proceeds to a system where importers can obtain hard currency at subsidized prices, Press TV reported.
Rafe’ said the measure is aimed at encouraging more exports of hand-woven carpets from Iran, a country known around the world for its high-quality rugs.
She said the requirement to return exports proceeds, which are applied to almost all exporters in Iran, had discouraged many carpet exporters over the past years and had led to a major reduction in shipments.
“The finance ministry has approved this and soon there will be some good news in this regard,” said the official.
