The fisheries minister will travel to Tehran in the last week of September. He wants to export both seafood and technology to the country after sanctions were lifted in January.

– With the repeal of sanctions, we are facing a unique opportunity. It’s not every day a market with 80 million people opens overnight, says Fisheries Minister Per Sandberg

Sandberg will become the first Norwegian minister visiting the country after sanctions against Iran were lifted in January 2016.

During his visit Sandberg will be attending a seafood conference organized by the Seafood Council and Innovation Norway. He will be visiting local seafood market and aquaculture, as well as having political conversations.
