In 2000, major imports included machinery, military supplies, metal works, food, pharmaceuticals, technical services, and refined oil products.

Iran's most expensive export is crude petroleum, which accounts for the majority of its commodity exports revenues (87%). Other exports include floor coverings (2.6%) and fruits and nuts (1.7%). Iran accounts for 10% of the world's carpet exports.
