On October 5th 2015 we had invited 14 of our members to meet Denmark’s new ambassador to Iran, Mr. Danny Annan, at a morning meeting at The Royal Danish Consulate General under the theme; Business in Iran.
On the agenda was the political situation in Iran. Iran is called “the last white spot” on the business card. The impending cancellation of sanctions means that businesses will soon have access to a market of about 77 million people. That will be quite interesting.
The message from Danny Annan was that companies should already now begin preparations if they wish to start or increase business in Iran.
- Danny highlighted demands in especially these markets:
- Foods and ingredients
- Agricultural products and machines
- The health area
- Construction area
- Port facilities
- Energy and clean tech
- The environment area
In 2016 Danish Business Council Dubai will organize some follow-up events regarding Business in Iran, including an event co-hosted with the Iranian Business Council.
