Tehran, Aug 19. MOBNA – Regarding the current situation of authorized mobile importers, the only way to remain in market is to cut prices similar to unauthorized mobile vendors, Pars Comtel managing director said.
”With the current mobile import tariff, only the smugglers can compete and there is no room for authorized vendors,” Hossein Payande told Mobna news agency.
”Authorized agents put insufficient effort when competing with smugglers,” he added.
”In a situation where smugglers own more than 90 percent of the market, only a logical reduction in import tariff can change the situation in favor of authorized importer,” he added.
Comtel is the company which imports LG, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and HTC mobile sets.
