New York – IRNA – The US-Iran Chamber of Commerce issued a statement in regards to the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 as a new opportunity to strengthen economic ties between the United States and Iran.
Furthermore, the US-Iran Chamber of Commerce (USIRCC) announced that it is ready to expand its activities in free trade.
On July 20th, Mr. Hadi Sadeghi, the President of the USIRCC, issued a written statement saying that “it is with great pride that during such a blessed time with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr as well as the celebration of Iran’s success [with the nuclear negotiations] that the US-Iran Chamber of Commerce announces the expansion of our activities.”
Evidence shows that the vast majority of the world, during the last century, has more or less had trade relations with American companies and financial institutions; however during these last ten years the economic sanctions have prevented American and Iranian businesses from having an open relationship.
With that said, the US-Iran Chamber of Commerce was established at the end of 2013 in the hopes of expanding trade relations between the two countries and facilitate communication. Mr. Sadeghi stated that “there is unlimited potential in expanding future trade relations between these two countries. The resources and needs of the United States and Iran are at a point that the current barriers will resolve thus allowing trade to resume and develop at an exponential rate.”
In addition, USIRCC believes that the current relationship between the United States and Iran is one of détente, which is at a critical point and strategic actions are needed at this historical juncture to bring about a better future.
