MOTIE Holds Meeting of Ministries to Promote Cooperation with Iran

The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE)’s Second Vice Minister Woo Taehee held a meeting with other relevant ministries in Sejong yesterday to discuss ways to help local companies enter the Iranian market.

The meeting came as preparation for the 11th Joint Economic Committee meeting between the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and Iran on February 22 in Tehran, which takes place after the last meeting held in 2006.

South Korea’s President Park Geunhye is considering a visit to Iran as the two countries seek to boost economic cooperation after the recent lifting of international sanctions on the Middle East country.
