Iran is scheduled to send a trade delegation to Austria in mid-October to explore ways to promote trade exchanges between the two countries.
The visit to Austria by the Iranian delegation will be simultaneous with an Iran-Austria Joint Economic Commission meeting slated for Oct 17-21.
Members of the Iranian trade delegation are due to hold B2B meetings with Austrian businesspersons.
They are also reported to have meetings with Austrian trade and economic officials, diplomats at the Iranian embassy in Vienna, and members of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber.
A senior diplomat at the Austrian embassy in Tehran said in July 2019 that Vienna will continue its trade ties with Iran despite the unilateral US sanctions against the country.
The US extraterritorial sanctions on Iran don’t affect Austria legally, but they have consequences, said Austrian Embassy in Iran Commercial Councilor Christoph Grabmayr during a meeting with economic operators at Semnan Chamber of Commerce.
Grabmayr mentioned that Austrian companies need to wear “iron shoes” to enter the Iranian market that is very special for them.
