Austria keen on economic work with Iran
Shiraz, An Austrian official said that the preliminary assessments show that Iran's southern Province of Fars is home to ample opportunities for sustainable development and economic cooperation with Vienna.
'The main goal of Austrian embassy in Tehran is to use the existing opportunities and conditions so that in case of any future positive development in the international arena, we can take positive steps without any waste of time,' Austrian commercial attache in Tehran Grab Myer said at a meeting with representatives of Fars Chamber of Commerce on Sunday.
One opportunity is to strengthen export capacities of Iran since its products are of high qualities and competitive prices.
Fars Province has also unique characteristics plus natural attractions that can be used for mutual cooperation, the Austrian official said.
In another meeting with Fars Governor Enayatullah Rahimi, Austria's Ambassador to Tehran Stefan Scholz said that cooperation in building a hospital in the province and water refinery in city of Shiraz were taken as opportunities to strengthen ties with Fars.
He also assured the governor about linking Iranian and Austrian businesspersons as well as presenting Iranian companies, particularly Farsbased ones.
