The trade turnover between Dagestan and the Islamic Republic of Iran is increasing every year. In 2021 alone, it amounted to almost $45 million, which is 2.5 times higher than the trade turnover in 2020. We export cereals, wood and products from it to Iran, and we import fruits, nuts, edible root crops and much more.
