German Industry Groups Eye Iran

German companies are hoping to win billions of euros worth of business from Iran after world powers reached a preliminary nuclear accord with Tehran, and Germany’s engineering body urged banks to revise their business policies towards Iran. “German businesses see the agreement as an encouraging sign,” Felix Neugart, a foreign trade expert at Germany’s DIHK Chambers of Commerce and Industry, told Reuters. If economic sanctions were lifted by mid-year, business with Iran could “pick up markedly” in the second half of 2015, Neugart said. He added that German exports to Iran could double in the next five years. In 2014, the value of German shipments to Iran rose by almost 30 percent to 2.4 billion euros after some sanctions were suspended. “In the long-term, trade could definitely be in the double-digit billions,” Neugart said. Neugart said interest in German machines and facilities remained high. Prospects were also good for the auto, chemical, pharmaceutical, medical device and renewable energy, he said. Germany’s VDMA engineering association welcomed the deal, saying that as long as negotiators agreed on the remaining details, it would be a strong foundation for future relations with Iran, including economic ties.
