Following the implementation of the final nuclear deal between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the U.S., Britain, France and Germany), which took effect on January 16, 2016, there has been growing enthusiasm for cooperation with Iran by other countries.
The deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), has so far ended all nuclear-related sanctions on Iran, reopened the doors of foreign investment to the country’s market, and paved the way for the economic boom of the country. ■
