IRANTEX textile exhibition underway in Iran capital
The Exhibition of Textile Machinery, Raw Materials, Home Textile, Embroidery & Textile Products (IRANTEX 2018) is being held in the Tehran International Permanent Fairground with the participation of European and Asian companies, IRNA reports.
The representatives of foreign textile machinery manufacturing companies expressed readiness to continue cooperation with Iran and transfer technology to this country.
We have good relations with Iran and seek to expand our collaborations, said Pony Ma Chunguang, the sales manager of the Chinese Yuejian Intelligence which has been engaged in the Iranian market for seven years, in an interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
He said that despite the financial difficulties made by US sanctions, Chinese manufacturers are highly willing to stay active in Iran.
Erkan Yilmaz, the representative of one of the Turkish participants of the exhibition Asteks, told IRNA reporter that the company holds 14 years of collaboration with Iran and is ready to transfer technology to the country.
'Europe does not support the sanctions imposed by the US and we never miss Iran’s market,' said the regional sales manager of the Belgium-based machinery production Picanol, Vincent Geldhof.
Head of one of the Italian participants of the exhibition Laip said that although energy costs in Iran are very low, but transferring the machinery technology to Iran needs financial transactions, which is damaged due to US sanctions.
Massimo Bacheri stressed that his company seeks to continue collaboration with Iran because this benefits both sides.
The 24th edition of Irantex exhibition was underway on December 2-5 in the International Permanent Fairground in the Iranian capital of Tehran.
