Deputy Minister of Economy and Finance and Head of Organization for Investment, Economic and Technical Assistance of Iran Mohammad Khazaei in a meeting with ‘Bpifrance’ governor announced Iran’s readiness to have long-term cooperation with the French bank to pave the way for both countries’ companies to take advantage of its benefits.

‘We will not stop doing projects, attracting foreign investment, and moving toward domestic economic development just due to other countries’ fear of investment,’ Khazaei said.

‘Bpifrance’ aims at finalizing these agreements, ‘Bpifrance’ officials said.

Khazaei is in Paris for holding negotiations with the French banking and economic officials and for signing cooperation documents.

Banque publique d’investissement ( Public Investment Bank, also known as Bpifrance, BPI Group S.A.) is a French investment bank. It was a joint venture of two public entities: Caisse des dépôts et consignations and ‘EPIC BPI-Groupe’.
