Monday, 1 April 2013

Ghader Soleimani, Director General of the Foreign Investment Funds Institute, said that “More than USD 7 billion in projects were approved last year, showing an increase of 46% in foreign investment compared to last (Iranian) year… Most foreign investments have been in the mining sector (including mining, oil and gas), and the fewest foreign investments have been in agriculture.” Soleimani added, the “lack of foreign investment in agriculture is a cultural debate, because when land for agricultural activities is given to a foreign person, it will not receive any support form authorities and the people.”
