Gholam Hossein Jamili, the head of Iran-Finland Joint Chamber of Commerce, said the newly-formed chamber aims to promote cooperation between the two countries on transfer of science and technology, expansion of small businesses, and finding investors for Iranian startup ideas.

Jamili, also a board member of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines, and Agriculture (ICCIMA), made the remarks while speaking to ICCIMA news website on Monday.   

He said that Finland is a leading country in science production, and exploiting new methods to meet the needs of human kind.  

Finland has managed to increase productivity and reduce energy consumption in many areas, Jamili said.

He hailed Finland’s replacing fossil energies with renewable energies, adding that while the country is rich in water resources, it has managed to do great jobs in the area of management of water consumption which indicates it is not developing the technology only for its own use but to supply the other countries with this technology.   

A Joint Chamber of Commerce of Iran and Finland was officially launched last week following a meeting in Tehran where the managing directors of the chamber were elected. 

Speaking during the opening session, Mohammad Reza Karbasi, the deputy for international affairs of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines, and Agriculture (ICCIMA), said that in spite of the existing capacities, Iran and Finland have insignificant bilateral trade which he said amounts to just $7.5 million.  

He said that the two countries trade construction and petrochemical materials, dried fruits and medicine, with technology being the main imports of Iran from Finland.
