Iran Agrofood Expo, 23-26 May 2017
We had a booth at the Agrofood Expo in Tehran. There were a lot of potential clients who got familiar with our services. The nation’s per capita fish and seafood consumption is less than half as much as the world’s average, however the figure is increasing every year. People's eagerness to add more seafood in their diet was mirrored in their shown interests during the expo.
European Commission Workshop on TRACES
We attended TAIEX workshop on the application of the Trade Control and Expert System (TRACES) organised by European Commission in Tehran, Iran. The aim of the workshop was to provide complete practical training on the use of the TRACES. The workshop addressed the issuance of EU export certificates with specific focus on fish products. By improving the traceability of consignments and facilitating border controls, the application of TRACES would help boost trade between Iran and the EU. In order to ensure the proper co-ordination of all stakeholders concerned, the target audience of the workshop consists of certifying officers, central competent authority supervisors and economic operators.
