GCE NODE’s Iran Network meets for a third time to learn more about how to do business in Iran.

The seminar on June 7 in Kristiansand is open for all NODE companies. New participants are welcome to join.

In May, the Iran Network met to review the background for international sanctions against Iran, and the effects of sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear program being lifted by the European Union earlier this year. Lifting of sanctions include the oil and gas industry, shipping and ship building.

Sanctions related to Iran’s breach of human rights and its rocket program are still in effect. As are US sanctions against Iran. This excludes American companies from doing business with Iran, and it also excludes the use of US dollar as a currency for trade.

Speakers at the May seminar provided insight into Iranian demographics, its political life, the economic landscape and business opportunities, as well as an assessment of risks related to doing business in Iran.

“Iran is one of the ten fastest growing economies in the world. We welcome NODE companies to take part in a new seminar that will provide a better understanding of how to do business in Iran”, says Bjørn Saltermark, Project Manager at GCE NODE.
