The volume of goods cleared through the Mako Free Zone reached $ 800 million. In an interview with Tasnim reporter, Hossein Forouzan stated: Makoo is one of the largest customs offices in the country and the only international customs office in Iran, with a trade volume of $ 18 billion.
The director of Mako Free Zone said: “In a situation where all the country’s customs have highways and highways around them, but the condition of roads in this area has not changed much since 1345. He said: the people of this region and the province, at a time when the country is at war They have done a lot of service to the system and the country, and their economic role during the war can not be ignored.
Forouzan added: “Fortunately, with the support of the government, we were able to enter the area of infrastructure in the region and to a large extent provide the basic needs of investors in the region, including measures taken in this area to cross the road from Mako airport to Mako, widen the main road.” Towards the border of Nakhjavan, from six meters to twelve meters, the widening of Mako road, which is named after Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani, has been turned into a highway. These cleared goods are sent from this area to Sehlan, Jolfa, Aras, Shahriyar; But the lack of standard roads accounts for many traffic accidents.
He said: “This year, with the establishment of Bazargan export terminal, we have been able to increase the volume of goods clearance from this region to $ 800 million. Mako used to be a region without any industrial activity, but now the Chinese have entered the region and are building a power plant.” The Indians and Canadians have also entered and started industrial activities in the region. The $ 50 million increase comes at a time when Indian, Chinese and Canadian industries have not yet been set up. This figure may not be very impressive at the moment, but it shows that with the improvement of the infrastructure, this figure can be increased to three to four times in one year, and its volume may increase several times more in the coming years.
