Overview About International Trade in Iran

Main Industry Sectors

Agriculture contributes nearly 10% to the GDP but employs one-third of the active population. Only 10% of the land is arable and primitive farming methods are still used. The main crops are pistachios (world largest producer), wheat, rice, oranges, tea, and cotton. Illicit cultivation of the opium poppy is fairly common. Iran is rich in mineral resources, mainly: oil (4th largest producer in the world), and gas (2nd place in reserves in the world), copper, lead, zinc, etc.
Oil production represents 10% of the GDP. Industrial and mining sectors contribute nearly 26% to the GDP. The textile industry is the second most important after the oil sector. Other major industries are sugar refining, food-processing, petro-chemicals, cement, and construction. Traditional handicrafts such as carpet weaving and the manufacture of ceramics, silk, and jewelry are also important to the economy.
The services sector contributes to nearly half of the GDP.
