Iran lifts ban on export of tomato, eggplant, potato and onion

The Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration will not implement the decision to ban the export of four Iranian agricultural products, including tomato, eggplant, potato and onion .

On April 19, the Iranian Ministry of Agriculture Jihad sent a letter to the Iran Customs Administration to temporarily ban the export of the mentioned four agricultural products. However, the Iranian parliament's economic committee objected to the decision, arguing that the ban would result in a number of reasons, including losses for farmers. This resulted in the decision being annulled.

The Iranian Ministry of Agriculture Jihad has changed its decision addressed to the IRICA, and currently, the export of the mentioned products is not banned. Still, the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad may replace the ban on the export of these products with an increase in duties.
