2021-March-3

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s exports to its Northern neighbor, Turkmenistan, through Incheboron railway reached all time high of 220,000, an official said on Wednesday.

Director-General of Iran’s North East Railway Line 2 Mohsen Etemad said that although the border was locked down for over 100 days because of coronavirus outbreak, over 220,000 tons of goods were exported to Turkmenistan through the railway.

He noted that some 100,000 tons of cement had the biggest share of exports from Golestan province to Turkmenistan, adding that steel, tiles, dates, detergent and apple were in next places.

“Iran exported nearly 144,000 tons of goods to Turkmenistan over 11 months last year, but this year, it exported around 220,000 tons of goods in just seven months,” the official stated, forecasting that it would reach 300,000 tons until the end of the current Iranian year (March 20).

He said that the number of railway wagons for transportation of goods to Turkmenistan would increase to 30 from the current 20.

Incheboron is located on the route of Iran-Turkmenistan-Kazakhstan railway.

In relevant remarks in June 2020, Iranian Minister of Road and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami underlined that reliability and mutual commitments have played a key role in reopening of Iran-Turkmenistan shared border.

"With the implementation of hygienic rules, commitment, and regulations during coronavirus pandemic, some of the borders were reopened," Eslami said.

He said that Iran has reopened its borders with Turkey, Pakistan, and Turkmenistan, and trading activities have been resumed.

"In the upcoming days, road transits will also be resumed," Eslami pointed out.

He reiterated that reliability has been the main reason for Iran-Turkmenistan border reopening.

Iran Exporting Tractors

CEO: Iran’s Tractor Manufacturing Company Exports Parts to Europe

2021-March-2

TEHRAN (FNA)- Managing Director of Iranian Tractor Manufacturing Industrial Group Abolfath Ebrahimi said that the country has gained self-sufficiency in manufacturing tractors and its parts and is exporting them to other states, including Europe.

“(Under the conditions of sanctions) the European states told us to pay money to purchase tractor parts from them while they even said that there is no guarantee for delivering the parts and even repaying the money due to the embargos,” Ebrahimi told FNA.

“After that our engineers started working on manufacturing tractor parts in a way that later the same countries which had refrained from providing Iran with tractor parts begged us to supply them with parts,” he added, naming the countries as Italy, Germany and Turkey.

Ebrahimi said that the Tractor Manufacturing Industrial Group cooperates with over 800 tractor parts producers, and added, “We have even exported tractor parts to the Netherlands.”

In relevant remarks last month, Ebrahimi had said that tractor export capacity was very high, and this industrial product was exported to different world regions.

He stated that in addition to domestic factories, Iran Tractor Manufacturing Company had production lines in some countries.

He announced that this year, the company's products had been exported to African countries, East Asia, Latin America, and Iran's neighboring countries.

Iran Tractor Manufacturing Company is an export-oriented group and has a huge demand for exports. Hence, the development of Iran tractor manufacturing group factories is on the agenda, he pointed out.

Exports are the driving force that can keep production active and increase the job opportunities, and the liquidity that is injected into the market through foreign currencies goes directly to production, which shows the importance of exports, Ebrahimi noted.

Regulatory guillotine - a new step towards improving

business in Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan has been implementing dynamic reforms in all areas of state and public construction, in recent years, what is reflected in the legislation. In this regard, special attention is paid to the quality systematization of legislation.

Currently, the national database of the legislation of the Republic of Uzbekistan consists of more than 30 thousand legal acts, including 10 thousand which were adopted in 2017-2020. It should be noted that more than 90 percent of them are by-laws.

The fragmentation of legislative acts leads in practice to the complexity of their perception, legal discrepancies and conflicts, overregulation and bureaucracy.

As part of the implementation of the Concept for improving the rule-making activity, there has been adopted a Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated September 27, 2020 "On measures to improve the business environment in the country by introducing a system for revising legislative acts that have lost their relevance".

The decree introduces the principle of the "regulatory guillotine" as a mechanism to reduce the regulatory burden, providing a large-scale revision and abolition of outdated and outdated norms that negatively affect the business climate.

The main idea of ​​this principle is the possibility of quick revision and cancellation based on the filtration results of a significant number of regulations in order to identify ineffective, non-working, inappropriate rules, as well as rules that contradict the legislation.

Thus, about 500 decisions of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, which are outdated and outdated, are recognized as invalid. A list of more than 2 thousand government decisions, proposed for recognition as invalid, has been prepared.

Along with this, measures have been established to prevent excessive legal regulation and to carry out better work to systematize legislation. Among them, the establishment at the legislative level of specific criteria for the delimitation of acts, the introduction of the practice of adopting a new legislative act instead of its new edition with the simultaneous recognition of the existing legislative act as invalid, organizing the revision of previously adopted such legislative acts, recognition of the acts of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan as invalid at the end of the corresponding year and The Cabinet of Ministers, aimed at establishing additional non-working days during the celebration of official dates and postponing days off, as well as organizing events.

Legal acts of local government bodies (khokimiyat) will be systematized and included in the National database of legislation of the Republic of Uzbekistan (https://www.lex.uz/).

At the moment, the base of legal acts of khokimiyats includes over 3 thousand documents, of which, according to expert estimates, more than 50% can be systematized or completely canceled.

The procedure for adopting regulatory legal acts is being improved with the introduction of a regulatory impact assessment system, which provides for an analysis of the problem, ways of solving it, impact on competition, forecasting and assessing the possible consequences of the introduction of new instruments and regulation procedures, including an analysis of benefits and costs for citizens and subjects. entrepreneurship.

Despite the fact that a number of state bodies are authorized in the field of regulatory impact assessment, the lack of coordination leads to an incomplete work of the regulatory impact assessment system, especially in the field of entrepreneurship and social protection.

By the decree of the President of Uzbekistan, the Ministry of Justice is the authorized body in the field of assessing the regulatory impact of regulatory legal acts. A Regulatory Impact Assessment Office is being created within the Ministry.

In addition, a publicly available base of requirements of international treaties is being formed, as well as proposals and recommendations of international organizations for use in rule-making activities.

In the process of active integration of Uzbekistan into the world community, the measures taken will ensure the strengthening of the image of the republic, improve the business environment, increase the investment attractiveness of the country, as well as establish an effective and open dialogue with representatives of the business community and the general public to streamline the legal framework.
