The head of Iran’s Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Mines has said the rise in the number of business delegations to the country shows foreign investors interest in Iranian market.
Gholam Hossein Shafei, in a meeting with the head of Confederation of Danish Industry, stated that following the 2013 election a new chapter opened in economy. “We have overcome inflation and moved towards development of trade and foreign investment. Our private sector has also flourished and plays a prominent role in the economic field.”
He added that the government has commenced new constructive ties with countries around the world, especially the Europe.
Shafei stated that foreign countries showed much interest in Iran’s market and the country has been witnessing an escalation in the number of business delegations visiting Iran.
He said that considering the market of neighboring states, countries of the Commonwealth, the Middle East and the Caucasus, Iran had a huge customer market with a population of 300 million, which has huge potential for bilateral, trilateral and multilateral cooperation.
Shafei also pointed to the position of Denmark in Iran’s market and said, “Denmark has been present in Iran’s diary industries for over 50 years and more than 80 places in Iran have been cooperating with Denmark in this regard. There has also been cooperation in pharmacy, cement, urea and ammoniac industries as well.”
Head of Confederation of Danish Industry Karsten Dybvad, for his part, said that the confederation “is a private organization with about 10 thousand members of industrial, transportation and serving sectors active in the international arena.”
As for Iran’s nuclear talks with 5+1, he expressed hope that the talks would bear positive outcomes by the next summer deadline.
