Tehran, Amsterdam discuss expansion of economic ties

Business officials and activists from Iran and the Netherlands discussed the expansion of economic cooperation, particularly in alternative energy and agriculture sectors.

Iran-Netherlands Trade Conference meeting was held in Amsterdam on Friday evening in which officials and business activists from the two countries explored ways to increase cooperation and investment in the fields of alternative energy, agriculture, horticulture and food industry, ILNA reported.

Hossein Salahvarzi, the deputy head of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, and other Iranian officials spoke at the conference and talked about Tehran's plans following Washington's withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.

The European participants of the event expressed willingness to enhance ties with Iranian firms.

They further called on the EU to adopt a decisive and clear approach towards Iran and pave the way for banking and economic activities with Iran.

In May, Iran and the Netherlands signed two memorandums of understanding during the second meeting of the joint agriculture commission that ended in the Hague.

The Iranian delegation reached comprehensive agreements with Dutch officials in the fields of research, vocational education and joint investment, marketing agricultural products and management of water and soil.

During the signing ceremony, the two sides called for setting up specialized working groups to push common goals in various fields, including preserving livestock and plants, greenhouse cultivation, genetic resources, fisheries and dairy.
