Public Relations and International Affairs: The Secretary of the High Council
for Iran’s Free and Especial Economic Zones, Akbar Turkan, has said that the
stage has been set in these zones to attract foreign investments.
According to IRIB World
Service, he said today (Saturday) that the free zones, via attraction of the
first wave of investors make it possible for them to tap into other investment
domains in Iran, which will in turn lead to reinforcement, development, and promotion
of Iran’s economy.
Turning to the publication of a
nuclear statement between Iran and 5+1 Group member states, Turkan pointed out
that the recent success of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team proves that via
prudence and wisdom one can succeed and achieve a final result.
Currently, there are seven free
trade and industrial zones in Iran.
One of the strategies of the Iranian
government is to boost the number of these free zones, in line with the
capacities of each zone, in order to expand economic and commercial exchanges
with neighboring and regional countries.
