Iran hopes to expand agricultural ties with Norway

Yesterday, Iranian Minister of Agriculture Dr. Seyyed Javad Sadati Nejad is said to have had a productive meeting with Norway’s new ambassador to Tehran, Sigvald Tomin Hauge. The Minister indicated that Iran and Norway have previously cooperated in the fields of fishery, forestry, and rangeland management, and the bases are provided for the expansion of collaborations in such areas.

Still, the minister expressed dissatisfaction with the current level of trade between the two countries, noting that, despite the long history of economic cooperation between the two sides, the level of trade exchanges has been following a downward trade after the US sanctions.

He further underlined some of the potential areas for trade cooperation, mentioning fruit and vegetable exports: “Per capita consumption of fruits and vegetables in Norway is 120 kilograms, a quarter of which is produced in Norway, and considering Iran’s great capacities in this area, we can work together to supply fruits and vegetables to Norway,” the official said.
