Iran is rich in commodities to trade, low in debt, in need of rejuvenation and updating and in need of creation of jobs. But with a ready-to-work and vast population at working age its transport sector is ripe for growth.
In 2008, two years after the UN sanctions were introduced, approximately one million people worked in Iran’s transport industry and the sector accounted for nine per cent of Iran’s GDP. It is therefore a sector of great value and thus of great importance to Iran. Whilst focus on the Iranian economy tends to sway towards its oil and gas industry, the transport sector is often overlooked.
