BUSINESS IN AND WITH IRAN:
THE OPPORTUNITY OF THE DECADE
New business with Iran was the hype in 2016, after the lifting of international sanctions. One year later, the topic is definitely worth revisiting, now based on real-life cases, not on assumptions or expectations. How shall international business executives realistically approach Iran? Will the country make good on the promise to be the business opportunity of the decade? What are the key “to do’s” and the “not to do’s” on the market.
Skolkovo Institute for Emerging Market Studies (SIEMS) and Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute (DOC) present a workshop to advance executives’ understanding of the Iranian opportunity – how to trade and invest in the country. Participants will better understand Iranian business practices, grasp challenges and opportunities, and understand the approaches required to formulate safe and profitable business strategies.
- Thousands of years of history, a specific branch of Islam, the Revolution of 1979: How do they blend to form the mentality of Iranian customers and businessmen?
- Opportunities beyond oil and energy: What to trade and where to invest?
- How to navigate a business landscape evolving from socialism to free market?
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
- Executives and strategists from international companies seeking to expand their business in Middle East.
- Owners of Mittelstand companies looking for more international opportunities.
