Envoy predicts rise in Iran-france trade ties
Iran’s ambassador to France predicts a good prospect for stronger economic ties with Paris in view of growing ties between the two countries.
Abolqasem Delfi said that considering the relatively good status of relations between Iran and France, bilateral economic ties are expected to grow further, Tasnim News Agency reported.
He was addressing a meeting at Iran’s Embassy in Paris which was attended by 32 representatives of Iranian companies and business people from Iranian provinces.
Delfi further pointed to the ideal opportunities for close cooperation in the agricultural sector pointing to a recent visit to France by Iran’s agriculture minister that led to the signing of four agreements.
Last week, Iran and France signed four cooperation documents to promote cooperation in the agricultural sector.
The documents were signed in a ceremony in France, attended by Iran’s Agriculture Minister Mahmoud Hojjati and his French counterpart Stéphane Travert.
Based on the agreement, Iran and France will expand cooperation in farming, fisheries and agricultural research.
They have also agreed to form an agricultural committee tasked with handling joint projects.
