TEHRAN – A high-ranking Iranian economic delegation will attend a conference in Germany to explore ways with over 200 German businessmen to boost bilateral ties.
The conference will be held on April 8 in Berlin.
Iranian Industry, Mines, and Trade Minister Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh will lead the delegation which will be comprised of the director of the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran, three deputy ministers, as well as 10 managers of key Iranian industrial enterprises, the Mehr News Agency reported on Saturday.
On January 14, chairman of Iranian chamber of commerce Gholamhossein Shafei said expansion of trade ties between Iran and Germany will lead to sustainable political relations between the two countries.
Shafei made the statement in a meeting with German Ambassador to Iran Michael Freiherr von Ungern-Sternberg in Tehran.
The German ambassador, for his part, stated that it is very unfortunate that Iran-Germany economic and trade ties have declined in the past years, and that Germans are unsatisfied with the fact.
In a meeting with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on October 7, 2013, Freiherr von Ungern said that his country attaches great importance to economic relations with Iran.
