The article reports that polypropylene (PP) cargoes have been sold into Iran for the first time in six months, as dwindling domestic stocks forced end-users to seek imported material. Polymer trades ground to a halt in early 2006 because of a $100 tonne gap between offers and bids. With the threat of United Nations sanctions over Iran looming because of the standoff over its nuclear ambitions, the government had called on domestic PP producers to cut back on exports and divert their output to the local market.
