Posted on

The Swiss-Iranian Chamber of Commerce and Industry EST 1976 (SIHIK) and the Economic Chamber Switzerland-Iran (ECSI), in cooperation with the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), held the well-attended forum entitled “Innovation and Industry Forum Switzerland-Iran with a focus on Health and Food”. Around 170 entrepreneurs took part in the event, 100 of them from Iran.

Our President SimonTiberius Fundel had the honour of opening the symposium. The speeches of the Swiss President H.E. Alain Berset and the Iranian President H.E. Hassan Rohani were impressive and the actual highlights of the event. The two presidential speeches were followed by high-quality presentations by scientists and representatives of public authorities from both countries.

In the subsequent panel discussion it was expressed that there is already close scientific and industrial cooperation between the two countries, particularly in the field of health and nutrition, which must be developed in the mutual interest.

Here are some impressions of the event.
