Deputy Foreign Minister for Euro-American affairs Majid Takht-e Ravanchi said on Wednesday that following the removal of sanctions, a new era has begun for investment and technology transfer.
He was speaking during the opening ceremony of a meeting in Oslo to explore cooperation opportunities between Iran and Norway.
Norway boasts very good capacities in different industries, including maritime industry, oil and gas, nuclear safety and renewable energies, Takht-Ravanchi said, adding that Tehran welcomes the presence of Norwegian companies in Iran that he said can open a gate to the regional market.
He said that presence of representatives from Iranian state-owned and private companies in his accompanying delegation indicates the eagerness on the Iranian side to cooperate with Norwegian companies.
The meeting was attended by representatives from 150 Iranian and Norwegian companies.
