Forging Iranian business links20 february 2017
Iran is set to be a major influence on the maritime sector over the next few years. Europort has played a pioneering role in connecting the international maritime industry with counterparts in Iran, immediately after the lifting of sanctions.
This year Iran will have a big national pavilion at Europort. This builds on the already close ties that Europort has established with the Iranian maritime sector. Visitors will be able to make high level contacts with a wide range of shipping companies, shipyards and equipment manufacturers at the Iranian pavilion in Europort 2017.
This initiative is being coordinated through the KTP Group, with the full backing and support of the Iranian Association of Naval Architecture (IANA). Secretary General of IANA, Peyman Masoudzadeh says: "We are very much looking forward to attending Europort and contacting global technology leaders, as well as prospective buyers. This is an important step along the road to reconnecting our maritime industry with the wider international market place.”
