Iran Investment Summit - Emcee Lester Singapore

The lifting of sanctions on Iran has created unprecedented opportunities for investors.

The Iranian economy has strong fundamentals and is expected to grow at an average rate of 4-6 percent per annum over the next five years.  Iran has a population of 80m and is the key gateway to the Commonwealth of Independent States ( CIS), creating a potentially huge captive market of 380m people. Iran is already the region’s second largest economy after Saudi Arabia.

In February 2016, Singapore signed a Bilateral Investment Treaty with Iran and the country’s  Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act (FIPPA) provides a legal framework for investment protection by foreign investors keen to invest in Iran.
