TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The construction operation of 22 giant steel and mining projects, costing $2 billion, is ongoing in Iran, the chief executive of Iran International Engineering Company (IIECO) said.

Mohammad Ali Aziz-Mohammadi told reporters on Saturday that the construction operation of these projects started a few years ago and their completion needs €700 million.

These steel and mining projects have witnessed good physical progress in the current administration, he stated.

He further noted that the construction operations of two industrial projects are also underway overseas with the aim of cementing the country’s relations with the neighboring states and promoting the economic diplomacy of the country.

Aziz-Mohammadi also said 20 companies are subsidiaries to the Iran International Engineering Company which was established in 1975 with the aim of transferring technical know-how of manufacturing industrial factories in the field of producing steel products.
