BUSINESS IN & WITH IRAN: THE OPPORTUNITY OF THE DECADE

New business with Iran was the hype in 2016, after the lifting of international sanctions. One year later, the topic is definitely worth revisiting, now based on real-life cases, not on assumptions or expectations. How shall an international business executive realistically approach Iran? Will the country prove to be the business opportunity of the decade? What are the key “to do’s” and “not to do’s” on the market?

Skolkovo Institute for Emerging Market Studies (SIEMS), Moscow, and Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute (DOC), Berlin, present a workshop with the objective to advance executives’ understanding of the Iranian opportunity – how to trade and invest in the country. Participants will better understand Iranian business practices, grasp challenges and opportunities, and understand the approaches required to formulate safe and profitable business strategies for Iran.
