NEW BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES FROM THE REOPENING OF THE IRANIAN ECONOMY

Iran is the eighteenth largest economy in the world by purchasing power parity (PPP) with a population of about 80 million. The lifting of sanctions has brought about numerous new business opportunities for foreign companies interested in entering the Iranian market, particularly in the areas of tourism, transportation, technology, foodstuff, aviation, machinery as well as oil and gas and other sectors.

Iran has 7 Free Trade Industrial Zones and 30 Special Economic Zones. The country has competent farmers, carmakers, drug firms and a fairly sophisticated service sector, making it less dependent on oil than other big producers such as the Persian Gulfstates.

The country has rich natural resources, which have been largely underutilized due to sanctions. There is extraordinary expansion and investment potential in the fields of oil, gas, petrochemicals, mines, industries, agriculture and the services sectors.  New Iranian legislation, such as the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act, has come into force to attract more foreign investment. 

The following presentations will be given:-

*  H E Mr Mohsen Movahedi, Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to South Africa - The growing relationship between
   Iran and South Africa

*  Mr Jonathan Passmoor, Directorate: Gulf States, Department of International Relations and Co-operation –
