Iran is getting closer economically

60
It became known that the Eurasian Economic Union signs another agreement on a free trade zone with one of the “external” states. This state becomes Iran. It is known that the parties will sign the document on May 17. The agreement itself will be temporary. The FTA with Iran will be valid until 2022, with the possibility of further extension.


Today it became known that US President Donald Trump instructed the administration to work out measures to reduce purchases of Iranian oil. Over time, the United States plans to completely abandon the purchase of Iranian oil, which leaves dissatisfied with American companies that have already adapted to the resale of oil produced by Iran.

So, going back to the free trade zone with Iran: the FTA will provide the possibility of duty-free trade in a number of areas.

Iran is getting closer economically


It should be noted that Iran is also a giant market. The population of this country is about 82 million people. GDP at purchasing power parity is 1,5 trillion dollars, and this is 18-th place in the world. In recent years, the Iranian industry has been growing at an active pace - an average of about 4% per year.

Iran has a positive trade balance. Over the past 10, the number of residents living below the poverty line has almost halved: from 19 to 11%. At the same time, the main problem of the Iranian economy remains high inflation — in excess of 16% and a relatively high unemployment rate — around 10%.

        Well, for starters, do not distort. We were in 13th place due to the devaluation of our currency. In terms of PPP, we sank one place, letting Germany pass ahead. This happened due to a decrease in the services sector. But in industrial production by PPP, we came out in 4th place. Of course, 3 countries are on a par and we can still go down to 6, but there is no way to go up. We will not catch up with India in the near future. The United States and China even more so.
        As for Iran, it is enough to look at already concluded contracts and memoranda. This is an excellent market for our products. And thanks to Uncle Trump, who got out of the deal. they will also have to compete only with the Chinese. We won’t supply weapons there, and it’s not that money. And here are the cars. wagons, locomotives, equipment for airports, chemical industry, grain, other food industry and so on - completely. Plus a recent contract for the supply of surzhiks, plus a contract for the modernization of railways, plus a peaceful atom - there really is a huge market without any weapons. And most importantly, we can well charge oil and gas and resell them.
        Moreover, we have no right to sell any submarines to them in the near future. request

            Because offensive weapons can only be sold after a certain time and after the decision of the UN Security Council. Sanctions on the sale of offensive weapons took the Security Council, where we are. We cannot undermine the decisions of the Security Council and urge them to implement simultaneously. When there is a vote to lift the US arms sanctions and the Britons will naturally veto, we won’t be able to sell submarines. Another thing is that we can try to get around them, helping the Persians to establish their own production, as in the case of tanks. BUT ALSO THE QUESTION - DO WE NEED TO CREATE YOURSELF A COMPETITOR? request
            In general, we already can do a lot of things for them to sell even from weapons. SAM, radar, devices, electronic warfare and reconnaissance, ammunition and so on. Plus, tests and preparation of an agreement on helicopters ka226 are now underway. But I repeat, as a market for the sale of civilian products, Iran is much more needed for us. Already concluded contracts for the modernization of the Iranian railways, the supply of thousands of passenger cars, 20 thousand freight, 350 freight locomotives, food. NPP construction is serious money for our enterprises. Plus, our companies have signed an agreement on oil and gas production in Iran, which allows us to control a large market share. All this is a great driver for our own economy and loading of our own enterprises. hi

      Iran did not order the Boeing from a good life, the states simply agreed to give away the unfrozen Iranian assets not in cash, but in civilian products. In general, Iran is now under more severe sanctions than we are, but the economy is growing faster, which indicates a more effective government. Russia has long, and often quietly, collaborated with Iran, including in the military field. Russia also buys and resells Iran’s oil, which, in addition to profit, gives an increased role in the oil market. In general, Iran is a very serious topic, we need to pay more attention to it.

      Before you expect anything from other Naldo, you must first abandon the Boeing.

    How will the US solve the problem of public debt without war? Even having robbed Iran, Russia, someone else by the method of "declaring" sanctions ... Compared to 21-odd trillion dollars ...
    This is a drop in the ocean ...

    I have not read you, but answered a colleague as well. yes It is difficult to disagree, everything is already written in history textbooks.

    The rapprochement between Iran and Russia at such a level will turn Iran into a war within the country between the Persians, Azerbaijanis (20 million in Iran), which the Turks have associated with Western countries. And Iran understands this very well.

      Iran’s rapprochement with Russia at such a level will turn Iran into a domestic war

      Again, the State Department horror stories?)))
      You can’t get close to the Germans, you can’t come to Iran, you can’t come to China. Not too much?)))
      That's just with Iran and China, it is necessary, but with the rest, how it will turn out
