In the run-up to the 14th Iran-Serbia Joint Economic Commission, which is expected by the end of 2015, Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dačić met with the Minister of Industries, Mining and Trade Mohammadreza Nematzadeh in Tehran on Tuesday to discuss cooperation in agriculture, energy and mining sectors. Nemtazadeh expressed Iran’s readiness for expanding cooperation with Serbia and said that a trade delegation led by the head of Iran’s Trade Promotion Organization will soon visit Belgrade, IRNA reported. The Serbian envoy, for this part, welcomed the promise of bolstering trade ties with Iran and said: “Serbia is hopeful and looking forward to cooperate with Iran on potential areas to be discussed in the joint economic commission.” According to director general of European and American Trade Offices of Trade Development Organization of Iran, Aneh Doroudi Iranpanah, Iran’s exports to Serbia currently stand at an annual $3 million. “With proper planning and management, Iran can monopolize the Serbian market and use it as a gateway to enter other eastern European markets,” he added.
