Poland to Send Big Economic Delegation to Iran
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Impatient to get the most out of Iran’s lucrative market, Poland has made arrangements to dispatch a high-ranking economic delegation to Tehran in September to avoid lagging behind the rest of Europe in the race to invest in Iran following a landmark nuclear deal.
Radio Poland reported on Friday that Polish Economy Minister Janusz Piechocinski will visit Tehran in September along with a group of businessmen.
“Our offer (to Iran) will rival those of our European partners,” the minister told a press conference, noting that Poland will have to compete with countries such as Germany to enter Iran’s market.
Piechocinski said 50 to 60 representatives from Polish firms will accompany him in the trip as part of a recently announced program, dubbed ‘Go Iran’.
According to the report, Piechocinski is going to partake in a Polish-Iranian Business Forum during his stay in Tehran and will also sign an agreement to create a joint committee for regulating the future economic cooperation between the two countries.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14 reached a conclusion on a lasting nuclear agreement that would terminate all sanctions imposed on Tehran over its nuclear energy program after coming into force.
The promising prospect of trade with Iran has prompted major European countries to explore the market potential in the populous Middle East nation.
Earlier in July, a high-ranking German delegation led by Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel visited Iran as the first foreign delegation in Tehran after the nuclear conclusion.
Spain has also plans to send its ministers of trade, energy and tourism, along with a 40-strong trade delegation, to Iran in early September.
