The Iranian deputy industry Minister, Valiollah Afkhami-Rad, has said that the number of foreign business delegations visiting Iran over the last year increased three times year-on-year, Mehr news agency reported.
According to the official, 19 trade delegations from 16 countries arrived in Iran in 2014.
The official further added that the delegations have discussed a range of field for cooperation including tourism, joint ventures as well as trade and engineering services.
