In Part I of this two-part series, we analyse macro trends after sanctions relief, and highlight Iran’s efforts to unify the exchange rate. Part II provides insights into Iran’s growing relations with Russia and the upcoming presidential elections.

We tackle the following questions:

  • How is the economy expected to perform in the Iranian calendar year 2016/17? What factors are expected to drive growth?
  • What impact, if any, would the upcoming presidential elections have on the rial and the official exchange rate?
  • How much significant progress has South Pars witnessed so far, and what obstacles remain?

The Country Views series shines the spotlight on specific developments in MENA countries, analysing them from a local perspective to deliver forward looking views for businesses and investors.
