As part of the Roscongress Foundation’s series of outreach events, a Russia–Iran business forum will be held in Tehran, Iran on December 13, 2016. The event will coincide with the 13th meeting of the Russia–Iran Intergovernmental Commission on Trade and Economic Cooperation, to be held from December 11 to 13, 2016. The organizer of the business forum is the Roscongress Foundation. The event is supported by the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, the Russian Export Center, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the Russian Federation, and the Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines & Agriculture.
The business forum will be attended by government and business representatives from Russia and Iran, who will discuss a range of issues: how can the existing potential for trade, economic, and investment cooperation be utilized? What kind of support does Russian and Iranian business need at the intergovernmental level? What steps need to be taken now in order to strengthen industrial and technical ties between Iran and Russia, and, looking ahead a few years, what would be the recommendations for a long-term strategy to further expand bilateral economic relations?
