New opportunities in Iran for the Italian engineering

not only great opportunities for development, but also the prestige of our country is at stake

Iran is finally back into the international community after an embargo that lasted nearly four decades. In the wake of the visit to Rome of President Hassan Rouhani, Italy arrives in Tehran with a delegation of two hundred entrepreneurs led by the Ministers of Infrastructure and Agricultural Policy, Graziano Delrio and Maurizio Martina.

During the meeting, held from the 8th to the 10th of February, the institutional and entrepreneurial representatives of Iran have shown the investment projects planned for the coming years in the sectors of infrastructure, construction, transportation and oil & gas. “As major Countries do – assured the minister Delrio – our goal is to provide Iran with technologies and the financial structure for their development program.”

NET Engineering International has actively participated in this “memorable” mission. The Group has been already developing the iranian market since last year and has a strong relevant experience in the Middle East, as well. “I wish to thank the promoters of this valuable opportunity. NET Engineering International – ensures Giovanni Battista Furlan, chairman of the Group – participates in this mission with the awareness that this is not only a great opportunity for development, but also the prestige of the entire industry of our country is at stake.”

A recent study provided by SACE confirms that opportunities for Italian companies are real and important. The end of sanctions toward Iran, following the agreement on the nuclear issue, could lead to a potential increase in Italian exports of nearly 3 billion euro in the coming four-year period, with the best opportunities in the sectors of mechanical engineering, oil & gas and transportation.

The mission has been jointly organized by ITA (Italian Trade Agency), the Embassy of Italy in Tehran, Confindustria (italian Confederation of industrial companies), ANCE (italian association of construction companies), Assomineraria (italian mining association), in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Economic Development and Transport
