Iran's Port of Amirabad is aiming to strengthen and develop transit from CIS countries to Afghanistan through the port.

Managing Director of Amirabad Port Siavash Rezvani visited the Special Economic Zone of Dogharoon in line with the plans of pushing transit from Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries to Afghanistan through Amirabad port.

The Commonwealth of Independent States is a regional intergovernmental organization of 10 post-Soviet republics in Eurasia formed following the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

According to a press release from the Ports & Maritime Organization (PMO), Iran, while visiting the Special Economic Zone of Dogharoon, Siavash Rezvani stated that Afghanistan is one of the target markets for the transit of goods from Caspian littoral states.

Amir Abad port as the only port connected to the national railways in the north of the country with its unique potential and hinterland, as well as the existence of manufacturing and conversion industries, is the closest route to the eastern borders of the country, which makes it possible to transit goods through the Amirabad port To Afghanistan.

The special economic zone of Dogharoon is the bridge between the two countries of Iran and Afghanistan and to take the most of this potential, all the capacities of this area should be utilized.

The executive director of the Special Economic Zone of Dogharoon also expressed: "If we have an intensive look at the development of ports and customs in the country, we will surely see growth in the economic fields."
