Why Iran?

For a long period, limited trade with Iran has been a reality caused by comprehensive international sanctions. In the beginning of 2016, Iran experienced a relaxation of the sanctions, which means new opportunities for Danish companies to enter the Iranian market. The Iranian economy is expected to grow, both in terms of GDP, in investments and private consumptions.
