TEHRAN- The first session of Iran-Germany joint economic committee, after 15 years, would be held from May 2 to 4 in Tehran, said Ali Majedi, the Iranian ambassador to Germany.
German Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister for the Economy and Energy, Sigmar Gabriel would lead the German delegation which consists of the country’s major companies, Majedi told the Shana news agency.
According to him, Iran's Economy Minister Ali Tayyebnia would preside over the Iranian part of the committee.
A 60-strong trade delegation from Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (TCCIMA) travelled to Germany on February 14.
Gabriel, who last July led the first top level German government visit to Tehran in 13 years, said a new chapter has opened in economic ties between Iran and Germany.
The German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) expects German exports to Iran to double to €5 billion ($5.5 billion) in coming years and reach twice that figure in the longer term.
Germany was the 14th leading importer of Iranian non-oil goods in the previous Iranian calendar year, which ended on March 20, 2015, according to the Iran Customs Administration.
Iran exported $354.17 million of non-oil goods to Germany and imported $2.33 billion of non-oil goods from the country.
