Middle East – ‘The political landscape in Iran is changing and the easing of sanctions will bring a wealth of opportunities for both Iranian and international companies,’ says Metal Bulletin, which is launching its inaugural Iranian Base Metals Conference in Tehran this September.
The comprehensive two day conference will take place in the country’s capital from 15-16 September at the Kish International Convention Centre. The event will focus on global market trends as well as the progress and outlook for the Iranian metals industry. Discussion panels will touch upon anything from new technology, investments for Iran’s 2025 ‘steel master plan’ and economic forecasts to changes in international trade.
Some questions up for debate include how material quality compared on an international level and how DRI technology can be tailored for the Iranian steel industry. Top officials will also outline the current regulations and rules for financing and movement of capital in and out of Iran; providing the ‘perfect guide to working in and with Iran’. Networking receptions and lunches will further facilitate business relationships.
Teheran counts as the ‘economic centre’ of the country and with a population of almost 9 million in the city and 16 million in the wider metropolitan area, it ranks as the third largest city in the Middle East.
