Shiraz is located at the foot of Zagros Mountains and is considered the economic and cultural center of Iran’s most important agricultural region. With a population of about 1.7 million, it is therefore the sixth largest city of Iran and the most important region of the country’s agriculture and food industry.
Wheat, potato, rice, tomato, cotton and sugar beets are the main agricultural products of the region. Along with the neighboring regions of Arrak and Isfahan as well as Mashhad in the Northeast, Shiraz is home to Iran’s most important producers of agricultural machinery and equipment.
During the last decades Iran faced a considerable backlog in foreign investment and the import of the modern technology. However, thanks to the recently reached nuclear deal, it is expected that the early imposed trade and financial sanctions against Iran will be lifted, and this in turn will boost international trade. The number of meetings between DLG and renowned producers of agricultural machinery at this years’ Agritechnica showed the revived interest of agribusiness in the Iranian market.
