Dutch Economics Minister in Tehran for Cooperation Talks
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Dutch Economics Minister Henk Kamp who arrived in Tehran early on Sunday, is scheduled to hold talks with Iranian officials on promotion of mutual cooperation between the two nations.
Heading a high-ranking economic delegation, Kamp is planned to sit down with Iran’s Agriculture Minister Mahmoud Hojjati on Sunday to explore avenues for the expansion of bilateral ties between Tehran and Amsterdam.
The two ministers will discuss contribution of the private sector in various fields of farming industry, joint investment in agricultural projects, and the transfer of technology.
The Dutch minister will also pay an official visit to the 21st Iran International Oil, Gas, Refining and Petrochemical Exhibition underway at Tehran International Permanent Fairground.
Several cooperation documents in the fields of oil and energy are expected to be signed between Iran and the Netherlands on the sidelines of the international event, which will come to an end on May 8.
This is Kamp’s second visit to Tehran after a lasting nuclear deal between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) in July 2015, which took effect on January 16.
The deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), has terminated all nuclear-related sanctions on Iran, reopened the doors of foreign investment to the country’s market, and prepared the ground for a much-anticipated economic boom.
The top Dutch official made a trip to Tehran in December 2015 and penned a number of agreements relating to agricultural cooperation between the two nations.
