Bojnourd, Khorassan Shomali Prov., July 8, IRNA – Iran economic councilor in Germany Seyed Ali Salehpour says Iran-Germany annual trade volume now stands at $3.4 billion.

Salehpour told a group of investors on Sunday that Tehran-Berlin trade grew by 26 percent in the post-JCPOA era.

He said the value of Germany's exports to Iran was $2.9 billion in 2017, while that of Iran to Germany stood at $500 million the same year.

Salehpour added that small business companies are more active in Iran as they are the driving force of many countries.
