UK GOVERNMENT SURVEYS BUSINESSES ON POST-SANCTIONS OPPORTUNITIES IN IRAN

UK Trade and Investment, jointly part of the Department for Business, Industry, and Skills and the Foreign Office, has issued a survey to British businesses canvassing them on their interest in the Iranian market and what kind of support they think they will require in order to begin operating there once sanctions are lifted (see previous blog). The survey also asks what ongoing barriers to doing business in Iran they have identified, and what they think it would be financially worth to them if those barriers were removed.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s current guidance on doing business with Iran is here.
