TEHRAN- As announced by a director in Iran’s E-Commerce Development Center, the value of e-commerce transactions surpassed 5.6 trillion rials (about $21.5 million) in the country during the first half of the past Iranian calendar year (March 21-September 22, 2021).

Faranak Abolmasoum, the director of monitoring department of the mentioned center, also put the number of e-commerce transactions at 1,894,036,496 in the mentioned six-month period.

It is while the global statistics show that the value of e-commerce in the world was 4.213 trillion dollars in 2020 and reached 4.921 trillion dollars in 2021, which indicates a 17-percent yearly growth, she further noted.

Back in late November 2021, the head of  E-Commerce Development Center had said almost all the procedures related to the country’s foreign trade were being carried out electronically and the center was seeking to make them all electronically.
