BUILDING STRONG PARTNERSHIPS The signing of the comprehensive nuclear agreement between Iran and EU3+3 on 14 July 2015 has paved the way for lran’s nternational trade to grow considerably in the years ahead The diplomatic ties between Denmark and Iran are more than 80 years old, and in recent years the relationship between our two countries has been strengthened even further. Now time has come to further develop our commercial partnership. Therefore, am honoured to lead this business delegation to Iran January 4-5, 2016. The business delegation consists of market leaders in the fields of energy, cleantech and maritime technologies & services, health, food and agroindustry. A strengthened partnership between lran and Denmark in these areas will benefit both countries in terms of economic growth, job creation, in- and outgoing investments and the environment. We wish to share Danish knowhow and technology with our lranian partners and hope that this official visit will significantly strengthen our economic interaction.
