Iran-Japan Joint Chamber of Commerce will be opened in Tehran in near future, Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) Chairman Gholam-Hossein Shafeie announced.

Speaking to ILNA, Shafeie noted that the two countries’ joint commerce committee has been already formed, and the two sides plan to turn the committee into a joint chamber very soon.

The official expressed hope that with the Japanese Prime minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Iran the two countries could remove some of the hurdles in the way of bilateral trade.

“Japan has been one of Iran’s oldest trade partners and we have had great economic relations throughout history,” he said.

Shafeie mentioned the negative impact of the U.S. sanctions on the two countries’ bilateral trade, saying “although the U.S. sanctions have affected our relations but the Japanese are highly interested in maintaining ties with Iran and we hope that Abe’s Iran visit will remove part of these restrictions and we will return to the good old relations.”
