At a conference held in Tehran on the economy and capital investments between Iran and France, Iran’s Minister of Commerce, Mines and Trade Mohammed Reza Nematzadeh discussed the strong potential of both countries to increase the level of trade, saying that if we realize the existing potential, the volume of commercial exchanges between the two countries will exceed $5 billion. He added that over the past several years, pressure applied to French and Iranian companies prevented the realization of opportunities between the two countries, particularly in gas and oil projects. The auto industries of both countries also experienced certain difficulties. Nematzadeh discussed the rich oil and gas sources, mines and Iran’s geopolitical status, emphasizing that in light of the fact that France has advanced technological capabilities in various industrial sectors, Iran and France can be good partners. He said that Iran hopes to open a new page in economic ties between the two countries and make it into a strategic partnership.
