Tehran, Athens to Exchange Trade Delegations

Three trade delegations from Iran are scheduled to visit the Greek capital Athens while Tehran is also due to host a Greek trade delegation by the end of the current Iranian year (started March 21), announced the head of Iran-Greece Chamber of Commerce.
“There is significant bilateral trade potential in the fields of tourism, medicine, foodstuffs, medical equipment, new energies, transportation and petrochemicals. Iran-Greece Chamber of Commerce is doing its best to exploit this potential,” Mehr News Agency quoted Majid Movaffaq Qadiri as saying.
He pointed to Greek expertise in transportation sector and said: “Iran intends to connect all of its southern ports and coasts to the north of the country and also to Central Asian countries via railroads, which present a tremendous opportunity to cooperate with the Greeks.”
Qadiri added that about 70 executives and managers from Iran’s pharmaceutical industry will visit Athens on September 15 for a four-day visit to examine Europe’s pharmaceutical facilities and prowess and also to get familiar with EU’s new trade regulations.
The groundwork for the expansion of economic ties between Tehran and Athens was laid in June when Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif met with his Greek counterpart Nikos Kotzias in Athens to discuss bilateral trade and cooperation in gas, oil and transportation sectors.
