TEHRAN, Jun. 15 (MNA) – Istanbul Chamber of Commerce, on the basis of an agreement with Iran Chamber of Commerce, will construct an industrial zone in Iran.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines if the MoU signing ceremony between Istanbul Chamber of Commerce and Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines & Agriculture (ICCIMA), Mohsen Jalalpour said “in their previous visit to Iran for building an industrial zone, the Turkish side had voiced readiness to facilitate the presence of Turkish investors in Iran.”

“Accordingly, the industrial zone will be established in 140 units with an initial investment of 10 billion dollars and it will be situated in one of the seven proposed industrial parks and free zones,” noted the official adding “up to 85 per cent of the zone’s human resources will comprise Iranian nationals.”
