Economic diplomacy – Iran – Visit by Stéphane Le Foll and Matthias Fekl (September 21 to 22, 2015)


Stéphane Le Foll, Minister of Agriculture, Agrifood and Forestry and Government Spokesperson, and Matthias Fekl, Minister of State for Foreign Trade, the Promotion of Tourism and French Nationals Abroad, will visit Tehran from September 21 to 22.

This is the first visit to Iran by a foreign trade minister or a minister responsible for a French economic sector for 12 years.

The ministers will be accompanied by a delegation of around 100 business leaders, organized in conjunction with MEDEF.

This visit, which will mainly focus on trade, follows Laurent Fabius’s visit to Iran on July 29, 2015 - the first bilateral visit by a French foreign minister for 17 years, making it possible to relaunch our political dialogue.
