“The focus of this entrepreneurial mission is on power engineering, including renewable resources, machinery and water management as well as information and communication technologies,” the Finance Ministry informed in a press release, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Kažimír was also supposed to open a business forum at the Tehran Chamber of Commerce and meet his Iranian counterpart Ali Tayebnia on January 19. The aim of this meeting is to strike economic agreements and set up a joint committee for economic cooperation. Two economic agreements are expected to be signed – one concerning the prevention of double taxation and the other regarding mutual support and the protection of investments, as reported by TASR.
