International Trade Secretary speech at second Iranian trade conference

Back to News

Speech delivered by International Trade Secretary Liam Fox at 'New Prospects for British-Iranian Trade and Investment' conference in London.

Good morning.

Thank you, Sir Richard [Dalton, President, British-Iranian Chamber of Commerce] for those opening remarks. A warm welcome to those gathered here today.

…Ambassador [Hamid] Baeidinejad [Bay-din-e-jad] …Distinguished ladies and gentleman

The nuclear deal, agreed last summer, has given the world an opportunity to move forward in the spirit of cooperation and engagement – with trade as a key pillar.

Iran completed the necessary steps for the deal to be implemented by the 16th of January 2016, lifting many of the economic and financial sanctions which had closed the economy.

The United Kingdom played a key part in getting us to that point and we continue to play a leading role as a member of the Joint Commission; the body set up to ensure the deal remains on track. And so far it has.

Relations between the UK and Iran have a long and complex history; and it is no secret that we have further work to do.
