After years of sanctions, the Islamic Republic of Iran has emerged from years of economic isolation on January 16th 2016 when world powers lifted crippling sanctions. The opening of Iran is the biggest one since the opening of East Germany, South Africa, Russia, and of course China. Iran’s economy is the world’s 18th largest by purchasing power parity (PPP) and 29th by Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Iran is also a member of the “Next Eleven” due to its high development potential and is tagged to become an “Economic Superpower”. New and exiting investors are poised to benefit from Iran’s re-emergence in the global economy.
