South Korean companies will be able to trade with their Iranian counterparts in the euro currency instead of the local won from as early as September, a report said.
South Korea will start trial run in the new payment system as early as next month before full-fledged service following the removal of anti-Tehran sanctions, Pulse News reported on Monday.
The euro-based payment system is expected to pave the way for Korean businesses to speed up $45.6 billion worth bilateral projects that have been sealed in May during President Park Geun-hye’s visit to Iran.
Korean firms will reportedly start working with Iranian companies in euro upon receiving a green light from Washington.
