TABRIZ, IRAN – Austrian
Ambassador to Iran Wolf Dietrich Heim in a meeting with the chairman of Tabriz Chamber of Commerce Yunes Zhaeleh said that his country’s businessmen are interested in developing ties with Iran.
Dietrich Heim said Austria’s economic structure consists of small and medium-sized companies, but Iranian companies are much larger and that the two sides are interested in resuming their historical relations.
Austria has valuable experience in the fields of air and rail and freight transport and can share these capabilities to develop relations with Iran, he added.
Given the energy-intensive industry plans in European countries, Zhaeleh said, Tabriz can be a good hub for supplying heavy parts of these industries and factories.
He called for facilitating trade ties and visa issuance for businesses to have access to the Austrian markets.
Referring to the ability of East Azarbaijan province in various fields for export to Austria, including agricultural products, he said that the province can supply agricultural products needed in winter.
Elsewhere in his remarks, he urged launching an exhibition to showcase the capabilities of East AzArbaijani businesses in Vienna.
