Iran's Non-Oil Exports Rising

Iran’s Minister of Industry, Mines and Trade Mehdi Ghazanfari said on Friday that the country’s export of non-oil products has reached nearly $25 billion annually. The ministry’s statistics show an average of 17% annual growth in non-oil exports in the past six years (Ahmadinejad’s administration). The volume of non-oil exports has hit $30 billion a year.

China, Iraq, the UAE, and India are the top four destinations for Iranian exports; while UAE, Germany, China, Turkey, South Korea, and Switzerland are the biggest importers to Iran.

I highly doubt their figures.
Besides oil and dates what else is there?
I doubt people abroad are queuing up to buy Iranian made cars or fridges.

So I presume the non-oil exports could be dates,dried fruits,carpets the usual stuff.
As for cheap Chinese imports it's still flooding in with no dents.
