Subsidized Imports Spur Smuggling of Essential Goods From Iran

Sugar cubes, tomato paste, rice, fish, eggs and many other products categorized by the government as “essential goods”, importers of which get subsidized foreign currency, are now popping up in shops of neighboring countries.

Countries that were once sources of smuggled goods to Iran are now the destinations of large volumes of products, a majority of which were imported to Iran in the first place.

Iranian products are in demand in Iraq. Residents of the neighboring country are flocking to the southern Iranian cities of Abadan and Khorramshahr.
