Netherlands in the Vanguard of Agro Cooperation With Iran

Business & Markets Desk

Despite an acute water crisis, the Iranian government is striving to maintain the quantity and quality of its agricultural products at levels that sufficiently meet—at least with regard to select staple food products—domestic demands of the country’s growing population.
In this respect, there has been a conspicuous about-face in the government’s approach toward farming, food production and the measures it has taken over the past few years.
Among the strategic changes are the considerable investments made in agro mechanization, installation of modern irrigation systems, water management and construction of new greenhouses, to name a few. 
Notably, the Agriculture Ministry has shown keen interest in seeking assistance from countries that are more experienced in the agriculture sector and enjoy prominence in international markets.
