Slovakia has thereby become one of the first EU countries to facilitate their entrepreneurs' business cooperation with Iran in this manner. There is also growing support for mutual trade and investment, as economic sanctions against Tehran are being lifted in the wake of a six-nation nuclear supervision deal, according to the press department of the ministry.

The support for investments and trade is to be bolstered also by a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Iranian Organisation for Investment, Economic and Technical Cooperation and the Slovak Agency for Development of Investments and Trade (SARIO).
