India’s 1st export shipment for Afghanistan through Iran arrives at Chabahar Port


In a key development towards creating a reliable transport corridor for the smooth transport and transit of goods and services through Chabahar Port between the three countries of Afghanistan, Iran and India, India’s first export shipment to Afghanistan via Iran arrived at Iran’s Chabahar Port, said a report.


Mr Khan Jan Alokozay, Deputy Chairman of the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries, said, "Around 500 tonnes of rice which were bought from India have arrived in Chabahar this week. Exports have also started through Chabahar." 


He pointed out that this is the first Indian cargo sent to Afghanistan through Chabahar, and in line with the plans to boost regional connectivity, Afghanistan is ready to send its second shipment to India via Chabahar.


In May 2016, India, Iran and Afghanistan had signed an agreement to establish a Transit and Transport Corridor between the three countries using Chabahar Port as the regional hub for sea transportation, the report said.
