  • The challenges for partnership between well-known Italian large companies like Fiat with Iran
  • large foreign companies have their own global strategies and hesitations but these days small and medium sized companies are more interested to begin the collaboration with Iran but the point is to prepare the ground for exploring the opportunities in Iran for foreign companies
  • Foreign SMEs are open for collaboration with Iran but the government is working on large foreign companies, while technological cooperation can be more beneficial for the country
