The Turkish capital of Ankara will soon play host to a conference on studying investment opportunities for Turkish investors in the Iranian market.
According to a report carried by Turkey’s Anadolu Agency, the conference, titled “A Study of Investment Opportunities in Iran”, will be held on May 17 with Turkish businessmen and economic officials in attendance.
Iranian Ambassador to Turkey Mohammad Ebrahim Taherian will also attend the event, scheduled to be held at ATO Congresium in the capital.
Jointly organized by Turkey’s Economy Ministry in cooperation with the country’s Independent Industrialists and Businessmen’s Association (MUSIAD) and Chamber of Commerce, the event is expected to focus on various subjects, including investment, trade, and bilateral cooperation between the two neighboring countries.
Iran and Turkey have ramped up efforts to boost bilateral trade since the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a lasting nuclear deal between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).
In April last year, the two countries signed eight memorandums of understanding (MoUs) to strengthen bilateral cooperation in various areas.
