Minister of Industries, Mines and Trade Mohammad Reza Ne’matzadeh highlighted the positive role of private sector in Iran-Oman economic ties, saying that Iran’s private sector is prepared to step up cooperation with Oman.
He made the remarks in a meeting with his Omani counterpart, Masoud al-Sanadi on the sidelines of Ministerial Meeting of World Trade Organization (WTO) in Kenya.
Referring to Iran’s resolve for having friendly ties with all neighboring states, Ne’matzadeh said that Iran’s regional stances will contribute to all countries’ peace and stability.
Iran’s private sector has valuable experience in implementing developmental projects, he said, noting that involvement of the sector in Oman’s developmental, medical and construction projects will be positive.
Al-Sanadi, for his part, stressed the need for facilitating trade with Iran, paving the way for sea trip between the two countries and providing necessary equipment for using sea and rail transportation fleet.
The Omani government invites investors of other countries including Iran to take part in different projects, he said, hoping that the Iranian private sector’s involvement in such projects will help promote mutual cooperation.
Ne’matzadeh who is currently in Kenya at the head of delegation is to attend Ministerial Summit of WTO
