Hosni said the world's largest companies in the fields of tourism, therapeutic tourism, clean energy, agriculture, oil, gas, petrochemicals, auto and related industries, and food industry have agreed to participate in the forum: 100 companies and economic organizations have been invited to visit Iran and its economic opportunities, and so far more than 60 percent of them have agreed to take part in the forum.
He pointed out that the forum will be hold in cooperation with FEMOZA (World Free and Special Economic Zones Federation), UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization), UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development), World Bank, European Investment Bank, Asian Development Bank, WAIPA (World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies) in Tehran November 25-28.
Hosni further stated that the list of all economic capacities of Iran has been announced to foreign parties, saying: The interest of about 300 domestic companies has also been considered for the participants to spend their time on discussing and concluding a memorandum of understanding.
He concluded that the forum and the presence of companies from China, Germany, Denmark, Finland, France, Russia, Japan, Serbia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, UAE, India and Saudi Arabia show that Tramp’s recent remarks on the JCPOA have had no effect on the global determination for economic engagement with Iran.
