S-GE Event

Impulse Event: Iran

Concrete solutions to tackle Iran market!

Impulse Event: Iran

We are in the second year after the lifting of Iran sanctions. Swiss companies have an excellent reputation in Iran, yet many SMEs report obstacles that slow down their business. These obstacles include banking issues, lack of clarity regarding Swiss versus US sanctions, difficulty to access local sales channels and how to address legal or logistic issues.

To update on the sanctions, we have invited the SECO Deputy Head sanctions division. Switzerland Global Enterprise has also discovered several concrete and innovative answers to support your exports into this untapped market. Come and discover our offers and meet in person some of the players who can support your exports.

Do not miss the opportunity to take part in our event and discover the solutions to your expansion!
