Earlier in December, the International Institute of Iran Industries Research held an international conference on trade, investment, and economic cooperation between Iran and China.

Aimed at exploring the challenges in the way of trade cooperation between the two countries and presenting the latest solutions for them, the event hosted over 100 businessmen and officials from the country’s public- and private-sector organizations.
