Some 15 Iranian and seven joint Iranian-Tajik companies have put on display their latest achievements in the fields of agriculture, handicrafts, petrochemical, pastries, carpets, construction materials and pharmaceuticals in the event.
Addressing the gathering, head of an Iranian marketing company, Mohammad Omrani said that the event seeks to develop cooperation between the two countries.
He also noted that his country has so far paved the ground for organizing several exhibits of Iranian goods in Algeria, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan, IRNA reported.
