TEHRAN – Iran has set a target of earning $1 billion in furniture exports over the next 3-5 years, IRNA quoted Trade Promotion Organization’s Deputy Director Kiyumars Fathollah Kermanshahi as saying.
The issue of attaining one percent share in the global furniture trade is seriously pursued, he noted.
He put the current value of global furniture trade at around $270 billion.
Unfortunately, Iran exported just $12 million worth of furniture last year, which was a tiny figure compared with the global trade, he added.
