IMPORT OF POLYMER RAW MATERIAL FROM IRAN TO ARMENIA STOPPED – ENTREPRENEURS TURN TO THE PM
Nov 6 2012
Yerevan/Mediamax/. Import of polymer raw material from Iran to Armenia
has been stopped over 2 weeks and it may affect the food production
and agricultural sectors, Union of Manufacturers and Entrepreneurs
of Armenia (UMEA) stated this today.
“Iran stopped the export of 53 types of products to foreign countries
and as a result, the import of polymer raw material (polyethylene,
polypropylene and polystyrene) to Armenia has been stopped over 2
weeks and it will have an extremely negative impact on particularly
the food production and agricultural spheres. Arrangement of importing
polymer raw material from other countries will take at least 30-40
days and naturally, at a higher rate which will entail growth of price
for goods. The UMEA turned to Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan
asking him to help settle the issue with the relevant bodies of Iran”,
the statement of the Union reads.
