Japan is interested to invest in Shahid Rajaee Port in Hormozgan Province as they had previously negotiated for maritime cooperation in this Port. Shahid Rajaee Port can play an important role in the development of trade in the region. Eighty percent of Iran's transit is accomplished through Shahid Rajaee Port.
