Baku, Azerbaijan, May 30
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Iran will export 50,000 cars to Ivory Coast over the next five years, Iranian Deputy Industry Minister Valiollah Afkhami-Rad said.
He noted that Iran will export the cars to Ivory Coast in order to renovate its public transportation fleet, Iran's Mehr news agency reported on May 30.
Afkhami-Rad made the remarks in a meeting with Ivory Coast's Transport Minister Gaoussou Toure in Tehran.
Ivory Coast, officially the Republic of Ivory Coast, is a country in West Africa. It borders Liberia, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, and Ghana; its southern boundary is along the Gulf of Guinea.
"Iran enjoys high capacities and capabilities in the car-making industry. We are interested in the establishment of Iranian auto-manufacturing factories in Ivory Coast," Afkhami-Rad said.
He also called for launching direct flights between the two countries and setting up Iranian banks in the African country.
