Froozan, CEO of Maku Free Zone, in an annual meeting with the president by
presenting a report on the process of regional activities in the fields of

and culture, asked for two main demands of Maku Free Zone Organization namely,
integration of investment management and launching Erzurum, Bazergan and Tabriz
He explained that, the issue of lack of integrated investment management
has caused many problems such as administrative bureaucracy, undesirable administrative
procedures especially outside of the zone on allocation of gas and electricity
which in turn causes desperation and unwillingness among investors to invest.

Tabriz Railway referring to the accomplished agreement between the presidents
of Iran and Turkey and asked the president to issue appropriate orders in this
