How to find an importer or dealer in Iran?

Iran: opening up for business

Iran has abundant natural gas, oil and mineral resources and a large pool of trained and efficient manpower. The country is apt to technological progress and international development. With the international sanctions lifted, this economy with almost 80 million people is expected to boost and export opportunities for all kind of foreign companies will arise.

How to find a good business partner?

The majority of the action in Iran is in Tehran, the capital. This is the place to start with your exports and expand from there. It is possible to fully own a subsidiary in Iran, but it is advised to work with a local partner as the business environment can be very different from other countries in the region. A local intermediary can help you overcome cultural and language differences.
