TEHRAN (MEHR - Trend )

Iranian Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Mines chairman said in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday that the world's developing and industrial nations should ease global trade regulations as a move to tackle the economic crisis.

Mohammad Nahavandian who has attended the 6th World Chambers Congress, from June 3rd to 5th, told IRNA that he has prepared suggestions to offer to the group of eight industrial countries (G8) and the group of twenty developing nations (G20) in this regard.

He said he has echoed the concern of the World Chambers member states on the supportive policies of some of the mentioned countries to resolve the global economic crisis through imposing limitations on international trade.

The World Chambers Congress, which is held every two years, has established an enviable reputation as the place where chamber and business leaders get to know international peers and share experience and best practice on grassroots issues that have a direct impact on the chamber of commerce community.

Chamber delegates from at least 100 countries are expected to attend the 6th World Chambers Congress in Kuala Lumpur, which will feature an opening address by the Malaysian Minister of International Trade and Industry.

The Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) is the host chamber of the 6th World Chambers Congress in 2009. This will be the first time the Congress will be held in South East Asia.
