Asadollah Asgar Oladi, Chairman of the Export Committee of Iran’s Chamber of Commerce and a leading economic and political figure, said that the Central Bank of Iran has left behind a “negative balance sheet” in the last days of the current (Ahmadinejad) government. Asgar Oladi said it is up to the incoming government to take the required measures in this regard. Asgar Oladi added that disagreements between the Central Bank, Ministries of Oil, Mining and Commerce and the Customs Administration will lead to a shortage of (some basic) commodities over the next several months. He said that the Custom Administration has not released some commodities, “mainly food materials that are fresh and refrigeration will be very costly, ten thousand containers of medicine and food in Iran’s southern ports and 5,000 containers in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Port are being held until this problem is resolved.” The Central Bank of Iran has not yet issued an order for the release of basic commodities, and it appears that the problem will continue until after the new government takes over.
