Secretary of Iranian Free Zones High Council Morteza Bank and Syrian Envoy in Iran Adnan Mahmoud discussed ways to promote joint investments through setting up joint industrial and commercial free zones.
The Iranian companies are prepared to cooperate with Syria in the field of free zones, Bank said.
Mahmoud, for his part, emphasized the importance of private sectors and companies of the two countries for investment in free zones, which would benefit both nations and let them confront the economic war imposed on them.
He went on to say that the sanctions imposed on Syria and Iran are a crime against humanity and hinder the two countries’ efforts to fight coronavirus.
