The prospects for strengthening economic/business relations between Limassol and Iranian cities were discussed extensively during a recent visit to the offices of the Limassol Chamber of Commerce and Industry by the Iranian Ambassador to Cyprus, Alireza Salarian.
The Ambassador was welcomed by LCCI President Andreas Tsouloftas, who proceeded to a thorough briefing of the Iranian diplomat on the special economic characteristics of Limassol. He emphasized the fact that Limassol is essentially the main donor of the Cypriot economy, with a huge contribution to the country's GDP. It is a city and district presenting a multifaceted economic product, manufacturing/export industry, services, tourism, shipping and ship management, sectors to which the rapidly growing high-tech sector has been added, especially in recent years, with the arrival in Limassol of dozens of such companies.
On the Iranian side, the desire to further strengthen bilateral economic relations was expressed, and the country's leading center of economic activity, the city of Isfahan, was presented, which, apart from its historical/cultural characteristics that make it a tourist attraction, has significant achievements to demonstrate, including in areas such as manufacturing and technology.
LCCI and the Embassy of Iran agreed to maintain an open channel of communication, aiming at continuously informing interested parties about existing or future prospects for bilateral business cooperation.
