Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) has announced New Zealand’s Trade Minister Todd McClay, heading a private sector economic delegation, will travel to Tehran on October 3 to visit Iran Chamber of Commerce and take part in Iran-New Zealand economic forum.
A trade delegation of 19 New Zealand companies active in food, meat, coffee, ICT technologies, construction, security utilities, radio communication, drilling, and renewable energies will accompany the country trade minister in his visit to Iran Chamber of Commerce. The companies’ representatives are also set to negotiate business cooperation in B2B meetings.
Iran’s Ambassador to New Zealand Jalalelddin Namini Mianeji on Tuesday said that the two countries enjoy growing economic and political relations.
"This is the first high-ranking economic delegation of New Zealand that enters Iran during post-sanctions era," Namini said.
Iran's ambassador to New Zealand stressed that the two countries had good cooperation in industrial and technology fields in the past, including the renewable energy.
He also pointed to the visit of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to the country earlier this year, saying Iran presented a $1 billion prospect for New Zealand.
