Swedish companies eye Iran

The approaching end of economic sanctions on Iran will mean access to a huge new market not seen since Russia opened for trade after the Cold War. Swedish companies are among those eyeing the potential in Iran.
“We’re receiving a lot more visits from Swedish companies and more questions,” says Peter Tejler, Sweden’s ambassador to Iran.
Iran could “without doubt” become a major export market for Sweden, says Trita Parsi, president of the Iranian American Council in Washington, who is participating in Business Sweden’s annual conference for Swedish export promotion in the Middle East and Africa currently being held in Dubai.
Lars Erik Forsbergh, MD of Volvo Trucks in the Middle East, hopes to resume business in Iran as soon as the sanctions are lifted. The truck maker has kept relations with their Iranian partners alive since the early 2000s when Volvo Truck’s sales volume in Iran was upwards of 10,000 units per year.
