IMIDRO Exclusive

Presence in International Conferences with Representatives of Foreign Companies

During the term in office of the incumbent government, from 1392 (2013) up to the middle of 1395 (2016), the IMIDRO team, by using the created international capacities, took measures to increase the level of its external communications. During this period, experts and management teams, headed by IMIDRO chief Mehdi Karbasian, attended international conferences, exhibitions and seminars in order to invite large companies to maintain presence in Iran. Some of those destinations were the Investing in African Mining Indaba, Iran Europe Forum in Vienna, IMARC conference and exhibition in Australia and the Metal Bulletin Conference in Dubai.

Karbasian convinced the Metal Bulletin that the 2016 Middle East programs should be conducted in Iran. The first Metal Base Conference was held in Tehran. Meanwhile, the first iron and steel conference of Metal Bulletin was held in Kish Island last year and its second term was held in Isfahan this year.

Over the past four years, domestic companies and NGOs convened 35 mining related exhibitions and conferences with the financial and moral support of IMIDRO. Of course, the main policies are directed towards improving the order and solidity of these events and efforts are being made to improve the quality by merging some of these forums and exhibitions.

During this period, many foreign delegations and companies from over 30 countries held meetings with IMIDRO officials including Karbasian. The companies were from countries such as Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan, China, Austria, South Korea, France, and Spain. Some of these companies are in the stage of studying or completion and development of projects in the mine and mining industries of IMIDRO and some other big companies are active in mining industries of Iran.
