Venezuela can play the role of a linking bridge for export of SAIPA Company to other countries in the Latin American region, the Venezuelan minister added.

According to the cooperation agreement made, SAIPA Company will send its products to Venezuela in the form of Completely Built Up (CBU) at the first step, he said, adding that the company will send 2,000 of its products to this country by the end of the current Iranian calendar year in 1401 (to end March 20, 2023).
