Shiraz Mayor Meets Danish Ambassador


Meeting the Ambassador of Kingdom of Denmark to Tehran, Mayor Eskandarpour said “there are several interesting opportunities for investment in the urban management area such as traffic and transportation, tourism, smart city projects, etc. We are ready to cooperate with Denmark in the said area.”
He also said that the cities could cooperate with each other in the urban management related areas regardless of the dominant political issues. “In the current situation,” he added, “the mayors of the world major cities can foster the inter-city relationships. Shiraz has a successful experience of promoting ties with European cities such as Dresden, Germany.”
He continued “Shiraz as the Iranian capital of culture is ready to enter into cultural exchanges with European countries. To this end, we can establish a sister-city relationship between Shiraz and one of the major cities of Denmark. The other cooperation area can be the academic exchange. Shiraz University is ranked high among Iranian universities and is active in establishing academic ties with the world top universities.”
He said “due to the unfair imposed sanctions, Iran is facing many challenges now; however, our country can provide some great investment opportunities to the interested investors. There are several investment opportunities in Fars Province and the city of Shiraz. The Iranians, after the removal of sanctions and economic flourishing of the country will never forget those who were helping them during hard days and will have more economic exchanges with them. The people of Iran consider European countries as having a special status and believe they can become more active and play a more active role toward the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.”
The Danish Ambassador to Iran said “on Wednesday February 5, 2020, the opening ceremony of Diabetes Bus will be held in cooperation with Shiraz University of Medical Sciences and Shiraz Municipality. This is the 7th Diabetes Bus which a Danish company and Iranian Local official bodies are to operate in Iran. In case of willingness and readiness of Shiraz, Danish companies and Shiraz Municipality can organize some special events on healthy food.”
Regarding the cultural exchanges, Danny Annan said “we plan to hold a film festival in September 2020 in Iran. Possibly, it can be held in Shiraz. So far, we have launched some academic cooperation in different areas such as archaeology, Farsi language training to Danish students, some joint studies on neurology, etc. with Iranian universities.”
He then added “I, on behalf of the government of Kingdom of Denmark, do not support the sanctions particularly the secondary ones affecting the foreign trade. Unfortunately, these sanctions have caused many international investors to leave Iran. In case of any change in the situation, we are still willing to resume our cooperation with Iran.”
