It's an IRN Summit!

Recently, a state representative declared that Iran will need to acquire 500 airliners over the next 10 years to renew its aging fleet. At the moment, the fleet consists of only 140 functioning aircraft, which is lower than average international norms. The end of sanctions will ease new business relationships with world powers and pave the way toward solving this issue.

Taking place a few months after an agreement has been reached to lift most sanctions against Iran, this senior level Summit means to establish grounds for companies that are looking to do business with the country, facilitating crucial discussions between businesses and authorities.
