Ireland can aid Iran in mining, aerospace, airports
Tehran, Iran, Oct. 10
By Mehdi Sepahvand – Trend:
Ireland can and is willing to use its areas of expertise to develop business ties with Iran, Noel Johnston, director of India, Middle East and Africa at Invest Northern Ireland told Trend October 10.
Johnston made the remarks after his return from a UK trade event in Tehran.
“My first impressions of business links between Northern Ireland and Iran are positive,” he said. “I was pleased with the warm welcomes and the open doors from all the Iranian companies we met with.”
Northern Ireland’s exports in such sectors as mining, aerospace, agritech, airports and hotels will certainly be of interest to businesses in Iran, Johnston underlined.
“Of course there are areas to be overcome such as the free movement of finance and the ownership issues,” he noted.
“Invest Northern Ireland’s IMEA team, headquartered in Dubai, continues to develop business links with Iran and I am confident we will see a positive increase in trade over the coming years,” he reiterated.
