About 18 months ago, most of the sanctions against Iran have been lifted. A great number of international delegations have visited Iran since in order establish first contacts or to refresh old ties. However, the economic relations between the Western world and Iran have not yet fully normalized - large German and European banks still fear heavy penalties from the US when engaging in Iran. On the other side, some smaller banks have started to finance Iran related projects.

Meanwhile, the Iranian banks are working intensively on their reconnection to the international financial community – taking into account all the requirements of the international supervisory and regulatory bodies. The interest in Iran-related business is unbroken, the re-election of the moderate president Hassan Rouhani for another four years was a positive sign for the international community. This is not a surprise, as there is a market of over 80 million - mostly young - consumers, who are well-educated and eagerly awaiting the opening of the international markets. Furthermore, the importance of Iran for the entire Gulf region cannot be underestimated.

Already for the fifth time, Maleki Communications is hosting its Banking and Business Forum Iran Europe - in close cooperation with the Iranian Central Bank and the Iranian Embassy in Berlin.

Topics to be discussed include the reconnection of the Iranian banking system into the international finance world, banking supervision and regulation, compliance, and investment opportunities for German smaller and medium sized companies - SMEs. Use this opportunity to get first-hand information and find out about the opportunities for your company in Iran.
