New Zealand minister of trade, heading a business delegation, is due in Tehran next week, says Jalaladin Namini Miyanji Iran’s Ambassador to the island nation in the southwestern Pacific Ocean.
‘The visit by Todd McClay and the accompanying high-ranking business delegation to the Islamic Republic is going to be the first of its kind following the implementation of the nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,’ Namini told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Tuesday.
He said that the business delegation from New Zealand, comprised of representatives from the private sector in the country, and officials from Iran are going to explore new ways for the two countries to develop their economic ties.
Iran’s envoy to Wellington also said that Iran and New Zealand are trying to remove banking and financial obstacles to ease bilateral economic cooperation.
‘Reestablishment of banking ties between the two nations is another issue expected to be discussed between the two countries’ officials,’ Namini said.
