Tehran Times  – A group of representatives from Iranian and Iraqi capital markets are set to cooperate in a joint project in which the Iranian side is going to share its knowledge and experience in this field with the Iraqi counterpart, the portal of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) reported.

According to Iran’s Securities and Exchange Organization (SEO) vice chairman for international and foreign affairs, Bahador Bijani, a 10-member delegation from Iraq’s capital market has recently visited Iran and held talks in this regard.

“There will be two working groups, one from the Iranian capital market and one on the Iraqi side. They will work on mutual projects and prepare them to be operationalized during a visit of Iranian delegation to Iraq in the next month,” Bijani said.
