Foreign ICT Firms to Attend Forum on Investment in Iran
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran is going to hold a forum in the next couple of days to let foreign enterprises get acquainted with investment and business opportunities available in Iran’s information and communications technology (ICT) market.
The forum will be held on July 23, with the participation of Iran’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi and Minister of Culture Ali Jannati.
Attending the gathering will be representatives of 20 ICT companies from 13 countries such as Hong Kong, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Armenia, China, Nigeria, South Korea, Germany, India, Canada and Russia.
They include director of CeBIT, a global event for digital business in Germany, and of GITEX, an annual information technology exhibition held in Dubai.
Following the forum, business meetings will be also held for talks between the Iranian and foreign companies.
There has been growing enthusiasm for trade with Iran since coming into force on January 16 of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a lasting nuclear deal between Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
A delegation of representatives from a number of Irish companies keen to invest in Iran’s ICT market paid a visit to Iran in May.
Back in December 2015, Sweden’s Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg had also voiced the European country’s eagerness to boost investment in Iran’s ICT market.
