Iran exported 152 million-U.S.-dollar worth of commodities to Uzbekistan during the first eight months of the current Iranian year (March 21-Nov. 21), Eghtesadonline news website reported on Monday.

The figure registered a 60 percent rise compared with last year's corresponding period, the Chairman of Trade Promotion Organization of Iran Hamid Zadboum was quoted as saying.

Stone-cutting machines, cement, propane, glass sheets, construction stones and furniture were Iran's main exports during the period under review.

Iran mainly imports cotton, yarn, potassium chloride, phosphate fertilizer and pinto beans from Uzbekistan.

Zadboum said that a barter system can help develop trade between Iran and Uzbekistan.
