Since the easing of sanctions in January 2016 the Department for International Trade (DIT) has been working out of the Embassy in Tehran to assist and support UK companies entering the Iranian market.

DIT and its network of trade advisors across the UK have been raising awareness of the opportunities in Iran, focussing on areas of UK strength such as: aviation, oil and gas, retail, healthcare, infrastructure and financial services.
