Due to significant interest in the market and following demand from potential delegates, the Middle East Association (MEA) are arranging a further Multi-Sector Trade Mission to Iran in early 2017.


About the mission:

  • This multi-sector Mission will visit Tehran from early 2017
  • Full in-market support will be available for the MEA Mission Leaders who have first-hand experience in doing business in Iran.
  • Delegates will be provided with unique networking opportunities including a vast range of introductions and high level executive meetings.
  • As the mission sponsor, the Middle East Association will be directing the mission programme in-country, which will include a variety of meetings and events based upon the delegate’s requirements.


Benefits of the mission:

  • The programme in-country will be led by the Middle East Association, who will organise a variety of group meetings and in addition a personalised programme per Mission delegate.
  • Mission delegates will be advised and assisted in obtaining the invitation required to obtain their Iranian business visa and are offered a specially negotiated group travel and accommodation package.
  • A bilingual mission brochure will be produced and printed, which will advertise each delegate’s company and product/service to potential contacts in-market prior to the mission’s departure.


Who is this mission for:

  • Members, and non-members of the Middle East Association are both invited to join this mission.
  • Mission participants must be British exporters of goods or services. They may be a UK registered subsidiary of a foreign company, provided they are actively contributing to the British economy.


Market information:

  • Given the developing commercial circumstances and international situation, this opportunity to establish connections and make business contacts should not be missed.
  • There is a positive outlook for UK-Iran trade relations and the UK Government fully supports expanding our trade relationship with Iran.
  • Iran is the second largest economy in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia with an estimated nominal GDP of $397bn in 2015. It has the second largest population in the Middle East after Egypt with around 80 million people. Over 60% are estimated to be under 30 years old and the workforce is highly educated.
  • EU trade with Iran currently stands at around $8bn and is expected to quadruple in the next 2 years.
