Tehran share market offers an opportunity to foreign investors

Financial Tribune – The remarkable performance of Iran’s share market in recent months can attract foreign investors, the deputy foreign minister for economic affairs said.

In a review of the Foreign Ministry’s moves to help attract foreign investment, Gholamreza Ansari said the robust stock market is attractive enough for foreign investors and Iranian expats.

“Growth of the bourse in recent months will encourage foreign investors, especially Iranian expatriates,” he was quoted as saying by the IRIB News Agency.

Pointing to the obstacles to foreign investment in the stock market, Ansari referred to problems associated with money transfers due to the US sanctions, saying that ways to overcome them are being discussed with the Economy Ministry.
