Deputy Minister-President of the German state of Bavaria and Minister for Economic Affairs, Media, Energy and Technology Ilse Aigner said the German firms including Bavarian companies will not miss the opportunity to resume their ties with Iran as soon as the sanctions are lifted.
“We are after restarting the relations between Iranian and Bavarian companies and will do our utmost in this regard,” she told Shana after a meeting here on Sunday with Deputy Petroleum Minister for International Affairs Amir-Hossein Zamani-Nia.
Aigner, who is heading a 130-member delegation of German business people and corporate managers, added that during her visit the capacities of Bavaria industries will be introduced to their Iranian counterparts.
“To this end, the Bavarian state’s trade office will open in Tehran during the visit,” the German official said.
“Some 50 percent of the accompanying delegation members have had relations with Iran,” Aigner added.
Zamani-Nia said German companies from the state of Bavaria are interested in supplying Iran with the equipment used in the oil and gas industry in the post-sanctions era.
