The Netherlands Strengthens Collaboration with Iran

The Netherlands is going to intensify collaboration with Iran in the fields of water management, port development and maritime logistics.

The agreements regarding collaboration at government level will open the door to Dutch companies aiming to bring in orders from Iranian clients relating to water issues and port development.

Minister of Infrastructure and the Environment of the Netherlands, Melanie Schultz van Haegen, has set down agreements with the Iranian Transport Minister H.E. Akhoundi regarding collaboration in the fields of port development, maritime logistics, offshore issues, shipbuilding and transport to the hinterland.

Iran will be making considerable investments in the expansion of major ports in the years ahead.

The agreements provide a basis for Dutch companies hoping to land orders for these large projects.

The Dutch trade delegation, headed by Minister Schultz, will be in Iran until Saturday 29 October.

In addition to meetings at Iranian Ministries in Teheran, the schedule includes meetings between Dutch and Iranian companies and a visit to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas.

The following companies are represented in the trade mission: BAM International, Damen Shipyards, Port of Rotterdam, Royal Boskalis Westminster, Royal IHC, STCGroep, Van Oord en Witteveen + Bos, Adverio Waste systems, Amstelland, Berson UV, Dutch Water Authorities, Interact Smart Solutions, RMX Tech and the Netherlands Water Partnership.
