Asghar Mosaheb announced that the mentioned units have exported commodities worth $1.74 billion during the first half of the current year, while the figure was $1.49 billion in the first half of the previous year, IRNA reported.

He said the exports have been conducted by 430 units.

Khorasan Razavi, Tehran, East Azarbaijan, Fars, and Yazd were the provinces accounting for the major part of the exports in the first half, the official added.
