Iran as a market

A short introduction


The Iranian economy is the second-largest after Saudi-Arabia in the Middle East. After two years of recession there was a mild Real GDP growth in 2014 on 1.9 %. 

On July 14 2015, the P5+1 reached a 'historic' agreement with Iran re. the Iranian nuclear-program. The JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) provides a long-term plan for limiting Iran's uranium enrichment, with an extensive monitoring of those  activities by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In exchange UN, EU and US will suspend and terminate nuclear-related economic sanctions.

However, sanctions on i.e. nuclear-measures, arms, software will remain intact.
