trade relationship between Hong Kong and Iran

The trade relationship between Iran and Hong Kong is very strong especially after signing the 25-year strategic cooperation agreement that is meant to help deepen the economic and transport cooperation between the two countries.


After China, Hong Kong is Iran’s main trade trade partner in Asia and its fourth-largest trade partner in the world” (May  2009.)  China is now Iran’s largest trading partner, surpassing the European Union.

According to official numbers, the UAE is still Tehran’s most important trading partner. In 2008, trade with the UAE was worth $35 billion, while dealing with China was worth $29 billion. But this number hides the fact that most of the goods Iran trades with the United Arab Emirates go to or come from Hong Kong or China. The Iran-China Chamber of Commerce said that more than half of Tehran’s $15 billion trade with the UAE went through Hong Kong or  China.

Taking this into account, Hong Kong and China’s trade with Iran is worth at least $36.5 billion. And mostly the best route to transport goods from China to Iran is from the Hong Kong hub.
