Senior IMF Official in Tehran for Economic Talks

First Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) David Lipton arrived in Tehran on Sunday to hold talks with senior Iranian officials on economic issues.

Heading a delegation of IMF economic experts, Lipton arrived in the Iranian capital on Sunday to exchange views with a number of high-ranking Iranian officials on economic issues following a lasting nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.

During his three-day stay, he is planned to sit down with Iranian President’s Chief of Staff Mohammad Nahavandian, Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Chief Valiollah Seif, Vice-President Mohammad Baqer Nobakht and Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh.

Lipton is also scheduled to deliver a speech at an upcoming conference organized by the CBI and also meet with a number of Iranian economists, bankers, and business owners in the private sector.

There has been growing international interest in ties with Iran since Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14, 2015 finalized a comprehensive deal on Tehran’s nuclear program and implemented it on January 16.

The comprehensive nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), terminated all nuclear-related sanctions on Iran after coming into force.
