En­voy pre­dicts rise in Iran-france trade ties

Iran Daily - - Domestic Economy -

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.
