“Based on the policies of the organization in facilitating the presence of Iranian companies, goods and services in target markets, and based on instructions for issuing licenses for establishing trade centers abroad, TPO has licensed the private sector to open trade offices in the UAE and Uganda,” Piltan said, according to Mehr News Agency.
He added, “According to the existing instructions, the trustees of these offices will have one year to pave the ground for establishing trade centers and obtain the necessary licenses from this organization.”
According to the official, the trade centers are aimed at providing various services to Iranian companies and businesses including consulting, marketing, legal services, registering the brands and logos of companies, and advertising services.
“Holding business events, allocating warehouses, advising on banking services, assisting in commercial contracts, transportation logistics services, insurance, and accommodations are other fields of activities of the centers,” Piltan said.
Iran has been pursuing a new strategy for expanding trade activities in new destination markets and opening trade centers in such markets has been the main step in this regard.
Last week, Piltan announced the opening of a trade center in Iraqi Kurdistan’s Sulaymaniyah region.
“This center has been established by the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran in collaboration with the Iran National Innovation Fund (INIF),” the official added.
