EghtesadOnline: Global Trade Review plans to organize the Iran Trade Finance Conference in Tehran on April 19.
“With discussions still ongoing, 2017 could be a monumental year for Iran, following the 2016 lifting of a number of international sanctions. This brings with it the potential for a new market economy within the international community, complete with the world’s fourth largest oil reserves and second largest gas reserves,” reads a notice posted on GTR’s website.
“With Iran keen to benefit from external expertise in a range of key sectors, including transport, telecommunications, infrastructure, technology, real estate and financial services, the conference will provide firsthand insights on latest developments, utilizing a proven event model that incorporates original content, interactive formats and an unparalleled networking environment.”
Established in 2002, GTR is a news source, publisher and event organizer for the global trade, commodity and export finance markets, with offices in London and Singapore, according to Financial Tribune.
“GTR’s inaugural Iran Trade Finance Conference will consider the implications of this new era, with a business environment ripe for investment and joint ventures and a mood of cooperation within the upper echelons of government,” the notice added.
The last edition of the conference held in 2015 attracted more than 6,200 delegates and 2,900 companies from 79 countries, from a wide range of economic sectors, mainly corporate and traders, banks and financiers, insurers and risk managers.
GTR holds over 25 events across the world each year, in Mauritius, Iran, Nigeria, Indonesia, Russia, Mexico and many more.
“With strong focus placed on a number of exciting emerging markets, we go to places others in the industry don’t, and know that travelling to a market and facilitating networking directly on the ground is the best way for delegates to get business done,” the website said.
GTR is also the publisher of a magazine published six times a year providing news and analysis for companies and organizations involved in international trade.
