Deputy Operation Managing Director of Iranian Railway has said goods transit agreement between Iran and Tajikistan will improve railroad transit in 2015.
 Hossein Ashouri told Mehr News that aluminum slabs and powder was the major commodity transited between Iran and Tajikistan; “several meetings between railroad authorities and companies of both countries addressed improving the volume of goods transited, the latest of which was held in February and March in Tajikistan,” he asserted.

“The meeting produced signing of a draft of a treaty according to which both Iran and Tajikistan would trade wagons; on transit tariffs, some discussions also held with Tajik authorities,” Ashouri added. He pointed to visit by a Tajik delegation, which would seek ‘signing of a good transit agreement,’ and would be signed by Tajikistan’s head of Railroad Organization and Iran’s Railway managing director.

“Fixing a transit tariff fee between two countries and export of technical and engineering services would also be a subject matter in meetings,” he said.

“Tajik delegation will visit wagon and locomotive manufacturing industries and Railroad Technical and Engineering School; with the agreement finalized, the goods transit would exceed 10,000 tons in 2015 and 4 million tons in a four-year plan,” Ashouri concluded.
