Switzerland is ready to expand all-out cooperation with Iran, particularly in the economic and trade fields, announced Swiss Ambassador to Iran Giulio Haas.
The Swiss ambassador pointed out that the volume of investment by Swiss businessmen in Iran has doubled in recent years, reported Fars News Agency.

"In the past four years, the number of Swiss tourists, who have visited Iran, has increased from 5,000 to 15,000," he said, adding, "The two countries enjoy cordial relations in the field of tourism."

In relevant remarks in December, 2016, Iranian Chargé d'Affaires to Switzerland Mehdi Abedi voiced optimism about the prospects of trade ties between Iran and Switzerland, noting that the two countries' economic ties are entering a new phase.

"The expansion of ties with Switzerland is important as the country is regarded as one of the world's most important financial and economic center," Abedi said.

He reiterated that after the implementation of the JCPOA, Switzerland also removed sanctions on Iran and new movements were started in different economic fields which included last year's visit of the Swiss president to Iran during which both sides agreed on drawing a road map to enhance all-out ties.
