Hosted by Iran’s Trade Promotion Organization (TPO), the event was attended by TPO Head Alireza Peyman-Pak, Director-General of the TPO’s office of Central Asia, Caucasus, and Russia Rahmatollah Khormali, as well as Armenia’s deputy economy minister.
The parties discussed issues such as Iran’s export of engineering and technical services to Armenia, barter trade between the two countries, developing the north-south corridor, establishing joint industrial parks, and joint production of medicine and medical equipment in Iran as well as the exchange of pharmaceuticals.
