The Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran was the guest of the Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone “INVEST-PARK”. Tightening trade cooperation between Lower Silesia and Iran was the main subject of the talks.
Ramin Mehmanparast, the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Poland, paid a three-day visit to Dolnośląskie Province. Before the meeting at the WSEZ seat he visited facilities in the Nowa Ruda subzone – Orion PU’s factory, where glues and sealants for the construction industry are made, and ZPAS, a company connected with the energy and electronic industry.
“Lower Silesia is a very important region for us, and the offer of the Wałbrzych zone makes it even more attractive. I would like to base the cooperation between our countries on many dimensions, including economy, science and culture. Our contact shouldn’t come down to official intergovernmental meetings,” Ambassador Mehmanparast said.
During the meeting, the functioning of the WSEZ, which is the largest of 14 special economic zones in Poland, was presented. There was also a detailed overview of the preferential conditions offered to entrepreneurs, particularly in the form of tax exemptions, and a presentation of sites near Wałbrzych that are available to investors.
“We are highly interested in contact with Iranian firms and we are open to cooperation,” said Maciej Badora, President of the WSEZ “INVEST-PARK”. “Iran has huge potential, also from the scientific point of view. The Wałbrzych zone, in turn, is the perfect place to locate innovative investment projects,” Mr. Badora ensured the ambassador.
The WSEZ’s president invited representatives of Iranian companies and government to visit Wałbrzych. The ambassador’s visit was coordinated by the Marshal Office of Dolnośląskie Province.
