Swedish Embassy Opens Trade Section in Iran
Swedish Embassy in Tehran opens a trade office as part of its efforts to boost business ties between the European country and Iran.
In a meeting with head of Tehran’s Chamber of Commerce, Swedish Ambassador Peter Tiller said the newly-established bureau is run jointly by the Swedish government and private sector.
Tehran and Stockholm eye rise in their economic relations after implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a lasting nuclear deal between Iran and the Group 5+1.
Since June, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif paid a visit to Sweden as part of a European tour, and arranged meetings with senior Swedish officials, within Prime Minister Stefan Lofven. In a meeting with the Scandinavian nations’ Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg during the journey, Zarif considered ways to strengthen economic interaction in the post-sanctions era.
Travelling with a 60-strong delegation of Iranian businessmen, Zarif also attended an Iran-Sweden mercantile conference in Stockholm.
