Recent negotiations on lifting Iranian sanctions draw a promising picture of trade liberalization and opportunities for direct foreign investments. The country, which has been closed for several decades to western manufacturers and retailers, might finally open its doors to its 80 million consumer market. Iran’s population is described as middle-class consumers with an appetite for western goods and brands, and a unique spending culture. Although the Iranian retail market has great growth potential and seems very lucrative, both internal and external barriers still remain, limiting foreign companies in making active investment decisions. So what should those considering entering the Iranian retail market do – stay aside and wait for more certainty or take the risk and start exploring new opportunities to gain competitive advantage?
“The 1st Iranian Consumer Summit 2016” will provide a unique opportunity to examine the consumer market in Iran and learn valuable lessons from those already operating and investing there. We will discuss the best ways and models to enter the market, learn how to optimize international financial transactions, evaluate legal and business risks as well as to assess consumer culture. Along with that, the summit will provide practical know-how on more detailed issues surrounding operations, distribution, HR, legal and marketing. The audience will also hear about the process of local Iranian companies’ selection for partnering, conducting due diligence and KYC procedures for ensuring long-term reliable and trustful relationships. The summit will provide a networking platform for foreign investors and corporates, both those who only now are looking to enter Iran but also those who already are operating there; as well as local Iranian manufacturing companies, distributers, legal and advisory firms.

Message from the Chairman
2016 has proved to be a welcome year for Iran trade as implementation of the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) was announced in January, meaning that a wide range of sanctions are now lifted. After 10 years of isolation, Iran is reconnecting with the international community. Most importantly, the lifting of sanctions offers significantly better economic prospects for Iran's population whilst the world's security has improved because Iran has complied with its part in the terms of the JCPOA.
Iran is currently exciting the interest of companies in many countries as trade and investment may now flow more easily. This is unsurprising as Iran has a diverse economy, is sometimes described as an energy "super-power" and as "the last great emerging market". Now is an ideal time to focus on the market.
The enthusiasm of exporters is not yet matched by the willingness of the banking community to provide trade banking services for Iran. Banks are working through their positions in the light civil penalties previously imposed by US agencies for alleged infractions of US sanctions law. They are encouraged to be open on Iran by the signatories to the JCPOA and, I hope, will find enough assurances from the US and EU governments to return to the market before long.
I am confident that the EU companies, importantly UK companies, will recover a significant level of the trade, and more, lost under sanctions.
For my own part, I have been appointed the Prime Minister's Trade Envoy for Iran - a new whole-of-government approach to boosting British exports, through a focus on priority markets and sectors. I will be working closely with BIS and UKTI. I am looking forward to a deepening relationship between the UK and Iran.

SICC has been established since 2006 and boosted a wide range of business activities in Iran’s market for Swedish/Scandinavian companies. The new era after the partially sanction relief against Iran would immensely create business opportunities for those entities, who would like to penetrate the Iran’s market as risk taking and long-term game player. As the other outcome of the post sanction era there would be numerous occasions for Iranian companies for expanding their exports among a wide international market, which Swedish/Scandinavian market would be an appropriate one. Our attempt is to strive for making SICC as a trustworthy, efficient and useful informer, communicator, coordinator and facilitator for companies, individuals and entities, which need professional services for their success in Swedish and Iranian markets.
