Mohsen Jalalpour was elected as the new chairman of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture on Sunday. The sole candidate for the position, Jalalpour received 354 votes from 424 members to become the chamber’s chairman for the next four years. The remaining 70 votes were either missing or discarded, ISNA reported. Jalalpour previously served as ICCIMA’s first vice chairman, while Gholamhossein Shafei served as the former chairman of the chamber.

ICCIMA, a national federation of local chambers and syndicates, was created in March 1970 through the merger of local chambers of commerce and the national chamber of industries and mines of Iran.  The chamber’s main responsibilities include contributing to the development of the country’s economic system, promoting the role of private sector, offering consultation and cooperating in the economic decision-making process of various bodies.
