Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN - Vis­it­ing EU Com­mis­sioner for Agri­cul­ture and Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment Mr. Phil Ho­gan yes­ter­day met the chair­man of Iran’s Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try, Mine and Agri­cul­ture (ICCIMA) Mr. Gho­lamhos­sein Shafei and dis­cussed major grounds for co­op­er­a­tion in agri­cul­ture sec­tor.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, Shafei wel­comed the pres­ence of the EU del­e­ga­tion in Tehran, adding that it is an in­di­ca­tion to the de­ter­mi­na­tion of both sides for ex­pand­ing co­op­er­a­tion es­pe­cially in agri­cul­ture sec­tor.

He said Iran needs EU sup­port to en­ter global market for its agro prod­ucts and trans­fer of tech­nolo­gies. He added that there are var­i­ous grounds for co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Iran and EU like fish­ery, food, hy­giene and hus­bandry.

Shafei called for mar­ket­ing of Ira­nian agro prod­ucts in Euro­pean market, adding that Iran needs EU sup­port for en­try of its prod­ucts to the Euro­pean mar­kets.

He also em­pha­sized the ed­u­ca­tional and train­ing co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Iran and EU, adding that fa­mil­iar­ity of Ira­nian pro­duc­ers or ex­porters with Euro­pean stan­dards can make ground for mu­tual co­op­er­a­tion.

Shafei noted that Iran is major pro­ducer of date, saf­fron and pome­gran­ate and it can co­op­er­ate with EU in pro­duc­ing them or in con­vert­ible in­dus­tries.

Ho­gan, for his part, said that EU is sup­port­ing the JCPOA and will de­fend it. He said EU is in­ter­ested in a win-win co­op­er­a­tion with Iran in po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic is­sues. He added that there are great grounds for joint co­op­er­a­tion in food pro­duc­ing and agro prod­ucts with Iran.

He wel­comed Shafei’s pro­posal for co­op­er­a­tion and ex­ports of prod­ucts to Euro­pean market, adding that Iran can be a hub for Europe’s prod­ucts in the re­gion.

He also an­nounced that EU will dis­patch an­other del­e­ga­tion to Iran next week to dis­cuss wa­ter and en­vi­ron­ment is­sues.

Ho­gan also wel­comed co­op­er­a­tion be­tween pri­vate sec­tors of EU and Iran.
