Market information:

  • Given the developing commercial circumstances and international situation, the opportunity to establish connections and make business contacts was not to be missed.
  • Iran’s economy is open to the world market after the historic deal on the 14th July 2015 in Vienna. There will be real opportunity in certain sectors, and particularly in water and waste management.
  • As one of the last untapped emerging markets, the Iranian economy has vast potential. However, it is important to note that the nuclear deal changes relatively little in terms of ability to trade as sanctions will not be lifted immediately.The FCO website states that if Iran adheres to its commitments and sanctions are rolled back, then the UK government will help the business and financial sector take advantage of the opportunities that arise, and promote trade and investment between our two countries.
