Sweden Interested in Iran’s ICT Sector

Sweden’s Minister of Housing and Digital Development Peter Eriksson expressed his country’s interest in having a more active presence in Iran’s information and communications technology market in the post-sanctions era.
In a meeting with Iran’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi in Stockholm on Thursday, Eriksson voiced support for Swedish investment in Iran’s energy, transportation and communication sectors.
Eriksson said Sweden has always had a “positive view” of Iran, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“With the anti-Iran sanctions lifted under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name of a landmark nuclear deal between Tehran and the P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain and France, plus Germany), Sweden is willing to play a more active role in Iran’s ICT market,” he added.
The Iranian minister said Tehran seeks to learn from Sweden’s experience in digital technologies and use the European country’s expertise for joint production and investment in Iran.
Vaezi hailed the idea of closer interaction between the two nations’ scientific and academic centers.
The promising prospect of trade with Iran after the implementation of JCPOA has prompted major European countries to explore the Middle East nation’s market potential.
Vaezi’s visit to Sweden follows that of Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif who expressed interest in developing ICT ties between the two sides.  Sweden’s Minister for EU Affairs and Trade at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ann Linde and 230 economic business owners met in June for strengthening mutual cooperation and exploring the two countries’ markets as well as business opportunities in post-sanctions Iran.
